My Bloody Valentine at The Riviera, July 27

With word going around that the band is working new material into their sets for the first time in over five years, the legendary shoegazers could not be hitting town at a better time. Of course, the band's recent fully analog vinyl reissues sound great, too. The deluxe bundles also include a snazzy MBV t-shirt. which explains why we may be a bit "merched-out" already.

Godflesh at Metro, August 24

For this writer, the band's 1989 debut slab of wax Streetcleaner arrived at just the right time to fill the void left by Big Black's break up and Ministry's increasingly smack-fueled thrash fixation. While Albini's band captured the sound of humanity buckling under the weight of its own ceaseless brutality, Godflesh was the sound playing over the end credits.

The band's eighth album Post Self shows the duo of Justin Broadrick and G.C. Green have lost none of the ferocity of their debut.
