Liars, The Apes - Warsaw $15

Since folks've been giving Liars eulogies since 2004’s brilliant and divisive They Were Wrong So We Drowned, which gave me even more respect for the band, I’ve been quite thrilled with the Cinderella story of Drums Not Dead – their finest album to date and one of the year’s best. Their success is even sweeter because they continue to ride in their own maverick direction, letting everyone else eat their dust. Drums Not Dead is a powerful trance-inducing collection that prominently features gigantic tribal percussion, the swarming hum of the didgeridoo, Gregorian chanting, and ectoplasmic drones - without ever coming off as gimmicky or overdone. While I’m have no idea whether or they’ll lug along the exotic instruments and project the videos that are included with the new album, and I haven’t seen Liars since the old lineup that featured a different rhythm section that’s gone on to become two-thirds of n0-things, I can’t see the band putting on a show that will be anything less than sweaty and goosebump-inducing. With DC's Apes, and, if you go on Monday, you'll find the same bill with the addition of the legendary Alan Vega.
