MusicfestNW: Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Earth 

When: Sat., Sept. 7, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $25
Here are a couple bands making the most of their second acts. First, there's the reanimated Godspeed You! Black Emperor, whose celebrated reunion became even worthier of celebration with 'Allelujah! Don't Bend! Ascend!, the venerable post-rock band's first album in 10 years that just so happens to be one of the best releases in their catalog. As for Earth, guitarist Dylan Carlson resurrected his long-dormant drone-doom project in 2005, but instead of just fine-tuning his previous approach à la Godspeed, he re-imagined Earth as something of a desert-scorched blues band that could easily soundtrack a spaghetti western.
