LA DISPUTE, PIANOS BECOME THE TEETH, MANSIONS
(Branx, 320 SE 2nd) Listening to La Dispute's new LP, Rooms of the House, is like dragging out albums from your ex-boyfriend's band—good luck putting the wash of emotions that follows into words. The Michigan band's excellent 11 songs traipse through the speak-shout screams of desert heat to an alternating fast-slow trek through piled-high snow. Prepare for a sweaty night of moody, lyrical post-hardcore. COURTNEY FERGUSON Also see All Ages Action!
