Tonight in Music: Danzig, Blue Sabbath Black Cheer

DANZIG (WITH DOYLE), SCAR THE MARTYR
(Roseland, 8 NW 6th) Read our interview with Glenn Danzig.


EYE OF NIX, BLUE SABBATH BLACK CHEER, HAIL, WINTER IN THE BLOOD
(Ash Street Saloon, 225 SW Ash) Seattle's Blue Sabbath Black Cheer might put their primary influences front and center on paper, but those proto-metal proclivities implied by the name are buried deep beneath the scorched surface. Sure, there's that vaguely doom-y aspect that always circles back to Black Sabbath and Blue Cheer in some form or fashion, but BSBC share more sonic similarities with noiseniks like Wolf Eyes or Hair Police, where horror and dread hold sway. Their short slash-and-burn tour down the West Coast is with Eyes of Nix, fellow Seattleites whose more tactile assault can only come across as accessible when compared to something like their tourmates.
