The Cult

Wednesday, May 24

Locals, especially older heads, who worship at the midnight altar of rad riffage and heavy fuckin’ rawk will want to be at The Aztec Wednesday to pay tribute to one of the original masters of goth rock/post-punk: The Cult. The seminal U.K. band, which formed in the early 1980s and has been quite active since 2006, after taking two stints off in the late 1990s and early aughts. The Cult’s solid 2016 album Hidden City completed a thematic trilogy of albums (begun with 2008’s Born Into This), so we can expect the band to lean heavily on songs from those three dense and rather spiritual albums, even as they indulge fans with the classics. With a sound that’s built on blistering and doomy percussion and wild and aggressive guitar extrapolation, it goes without saying that The Cult is known to melt faces with its live show. $30.00-$780.00, 8:00pm, Aztec Theatre, 104 N St Mary’s, (210) 812-4355, — JC
