Tiny Knives' more unhinged moments recall Crass' reckless musical abandon at times, and His Hero Is Gone's crushing anger at others. This show marks the release of the trio's first vinyl, Black Haze, pressed with the help of local heavy weird purveyors Eolian Empire. The Portland trio fit right in on the label with their ability to careen between anarcho-indebted freneticism and post-punk melody. The gear change between the fraught "Magic Xians" and "Silk in the Water" showcases this flip. "Xians" surges headlong over marching-band snare-rolls, with Jai Milx's growls threatening to rip the track wide open as it goes straight into the languid "Silk," a study in post-rock dynamics reminiscent of the other Portland titans of quiet-loud-quiet, the Ghost Ease. Fellow Eolian freaks Rabbits, blown-out party jammers Tig Bitty, and fuzzy garage rockers Hooded Hags open the proceedings. MAC POGUE
