The Body 

When: Sat., Aug. 11, 7 p.m. 2012
Price: $10

Fans of heavy music will have a tough time trying to choose which show to attend on Saturday, Aug. 11, with Portland's Agalloch at Great American and Tigon's record release at SUB-Mission. But perhaps they should try a third option: One of the most unusual and ethereal performances will be held in a backroom at the Oakland Metro (630 3rd St., Oakland), where the Providence, Rhode Island-based all-female choir Assembly of Light will perform with and alongside sludgy Portland two-piece The Body and Greensboro, North Carolina's atmospheric experimentalists Braveyoung. Two years ago, the choir contributed to The Body's All The Waters of the Earth Turn to Blood album, a union (and subsequent tour) that was apparently so fruitful that it led to continued collaboration, this time on Assembly of Light's self-titled debut, which will be released later this month by At a Loss Recordings and which features The Body vocalist Chip King, plus members of Braveyoung, Work/Death, Daughters, and more. On this tour, Assembly of Light, The Body, and Braveyoung will perform their own sets separately and collaboratively, plus special guests SutekhHexen and Evan Caminiti of Barn Owl. It should be unlike anything you've heard before. 7 p.m., $10. OaklandMetro.org
