This is a past event.


When: Sat., March 29, 7 p.m. 2014
Price: $7
It’s safe to say that only in Oakland could one attend a metal show at an Eritrean/gluten-free pizza parlor/sports bar. Perhaps this says something about the lack of small local venues for metal bands, or the cross-cultural transactions that naturally occur in diverse communities. Regardless, there are plenty of other reasons to attend Saturday’s show at MLK Cafe (3860 Martin Luther King Jr. Way, Oakland) — first and foremost is headliner Noothgrush, a South Bay band that began two decades ago, took a ten-year hiatus, and reformed in 2011. Since, it has played major festivals and toured internationally, and its most recent release — a split with Japanese doom outfit Coffins — finds the foursome (now featuring Dystopia’s Dino Somesse on vocals) as caustically sludgy as ever. Also on the bill are death metal/crust band Necrot, which features Saviours’ Sonny Reinhardt on guitar; hardcore outfit Blown to Bits; and Baltimore’s experimental ambient duo Darsomba.
