Scale the Summit, The Ocean, Atlas Moth 

When: Thu., March 6, 6 p.m. 2014
Price: $12
For a band that doles out crushing, 10-ton riffage, the Atlas Moth are surprisingly nimble when it comes to nuances. This makes the Chicago band a tough one to pigeonhole—which is probably the point. There's a stoner/doom metal base, but there's breathing room that lets plenty of psych-rock, prog, and post-rock influences find their way into the mix. Bits of black metal provide a caustic counterpoint whenever things threaten to get too tranquil. For this tour, the Atlas Moth is joined by Houston-based instrumental prog-metal shredders Scale the Summit and Germany's equally proggy but far more epically inclined metal outfit the Ocean.
