Wednesday’s Music

The Appleseed Cast.

Giving you the music a day early:

There’s a hint of emo in the music of Lawrence, Kan., based quartet The Appleseed Cast, but it’s typically below the surface. What the act is really known for is its complicated post-rock beats and atmospheric music that also blends in cosmic rock and electronica. After a few years of lineup changes, The Appleseed Cast visits Juanita’s with local support from hard-charging indie rock power trio The See and Underclaire, a minimalist alternative rock act who released their newest album Making Sky at the end of 2009. The music starts at 9 p.m. with cover $10.

Richmond, Va., thrash metal band Municipal Waste visits Downtown Music to deliver their crushingly speedy music along with Maine hardcore act Cruel Hand, New York City-based hardcore band Backtrack with local support from Little Rock harcore act Jungle Juice and Pull Trigger. The music starts at 8 p.m. with a $10 cover.

It might be three days after Halloween, but the spirit will linger around a few days until shock rock band GWAR visits The Village. Formed in the mid-1980s, the band is well-known for delivering their thrash metal with a touch of comedy while performing in elaborate costumes with either a sci fi or horror look to them. Joining GWAR will be Ohio thrash metal group Mobile Death Camp, Florida death metal act Infernaeon and New Jersey hardcore punk band The Casualties. The doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the music starting at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $22 in advance and $25 at the door.
