At the release show for their new concept album 13 A.D., Havania Whaal pulled out all the stops and enlisted a handful of friends to act the parts in a play they adapted from the record. It was a strange and unique display, and I can't think of a more fitting goodbye to the recently shuttered Habesha. Even without the elaborate stage show, Havania Whaal's live act is not to be missed. Paul Billy Sobiech's vocals have an alluring, off-beat twee-ness to them, although he and his bandmates have left their woolly sweaters at home in favor of fuzzed-out distortion and warped textures. Tonight the band pair up with fellow experimental noise-pop outfit Lubec before they kick off a joint East Coast tour. CHIPP TERWILLIGER
