I have it on very good authority ( that YOB is the single greatest band you could listen to on this hedonist holiday. The celebrated Eugene-based group delivers a rare performance tonight as part of a "doom metal lovefest" curated by Rynne Stump, an ex-booker-about-town back for tonight's show. YOB rose to royalty status in American metal after more than a decade of releasing solidly devastating albums, most recently 2011's lauded Atma, and touring both the US and abroad. Their live show desecrates all listeners with excruciating, 10-minute onslaughts, anchored by the beastly vocals of Mike Scheidt, whose practice of Israeli martial arts and Eastern religious traditions informs the band's cosmically profound lyrics and sound. Simultaneously, Aaron Rieseberg's pleading, plodding bass riffs will envelop you in infinite sonic universes while Travis Foster's percussion sets the obliterating pace. MARANDA BISH
