The Grasshopper Lies Heavy, Spokesmodel, Blithe

When: Fri., Aug. 28, 9 p.m. 2015

The Grasshopper Lies Heavy’s 2014 album All Sadness, Grinning into Flow serves a master class in long droning riffs, expansive textures and the importance of badass amps. This gig at the Ten Eleven marks the tour kickoff for a mid-country jaunt. Spokesmodel’s twin guitars play high and furious riffs, blasting through tempos of muscle-cramping speed. Blithe’s inaugural EP False Sense of Entitlement reeks of anxiety, pounding over flickering dance-punk rhythms and tightly-wound guitar riffs. With The Freebies.
