Rabbits, Cull 

When: Tue., Aug. 9, 10 p.m. 2011
Price: free
If you find yourself stuck in a rut during the workweek, drop by Bunk Bar tonight for a jolt that will blast you out of your complacency. Rabbits are steadily becoming a Portland mainstay; the trio's patented blend of metal and hardcore sounds like lava shrieking forth from the earth—you know, if lava shrieked instead of bubbled, or whatever lava does. Their full-length Lower Forms, out earlier this year on Relapse, is a steadily fascinating album, rewarding repeat listens as the band vaguely carves out the stages of man over its 10 tracks. It's invigorating and a little scary, and it's all the better for not toeing the familiar metal party line, finding a previously undiscovered realm of bellowing guitars, cannonball drums, and guttural vocal yawps.
