Toronto outfit Metz, in town for a show this week, makes rock music that can appeal to pretty much everyone who likes any strain of the vague and far-flung genre. Starting from a grungy alternative rock base, the trio blends in elements of noise, punk and experimental hard rock. It is hard-edged yet highly palatable, intricate in a way that rewards endless repeated listens, but with a sense of emotional immediacy that grabs you from the first. You can check out Metz’ impressive catalog at metz.bandcamp.com
Pinko, a perfectly paired local act that makes an artful and experimental brand of post-hardcore, will open the show. Head over to pinkosanantonio.bandcamp.com
for a primer on Pinko’s face-melting goodness.
$15-$17, Thu Oct 4, 8pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary’s St., papertigersatx.com.
