502 Downtown Tacoma - Downtown. Kim Archer Band with Gritty City Sirens burlesque troupe and DJ Ninja Kat. Halloween costume contest plus raffle. 9 pm. $10 cash.

Bob's Java Jive Tacoma - Central. Heavy Prog with Breag Naofa, Feng Chia, Moraine, God Hates Fads. 8 pm. $5.

  • If you find yourself thirsty for post-metal, heavy prog rock, look no further than Bob's Java Jive tonight. Political, anti-religious, and blood-shedding doom is the nature of Seattle's Breag Naofa, who perfectly execute the qualities of the genre, with plenty of mid-tempo drone and growly vocals. The evening also promises the interesting music of Fang Chia, a Tacoma-based experimental jazz-rock band consisting of music alumni of the University of Puget Sound. Blurring lines and blowing minds is what Fang Chia strive to do with self-promo stating their combined musical background is "rooted in grit and improvisation." Also on the bill are two more Seattle bands, Moraine, featuring instrumental fusion appealing across all genres, and God Hates Fads, whose doom-jazz is prone to wandering depths and trippy heights. - Nikki McCoy

  • Recently, the powers of two bands joined together. The two-piece of Rowhouse became a four-piece with the addition of Aaron Berryhill and Chelsea Reed, of the well-liked but short-lived band, the Nadines. With the change in lineup came a change in name, to Wild Berries. With the incorporation of Berryhill and Reed, the sound of the band has certainly begun to gel. And louder? Yeah. Wild Berries have slid toward the Nadines' brand of garage psych, while still incorporating the jazz and blues elements that Rowhouse embraced. With no bass, and with the witchy, tremulous background vocals of Reed, Wild Berries is all craning energy and no low end. When they really get on a jag, it's like watching them tiptoe along a balance beam. Read Rev. Adam McKinney's full feature on Wild Berries, including an interview with Alex Tapia of Rowhouse, in the Music and Culture section.
