This Weekend: Breag Naofa, Fang Chia, Moraine and God Hates Fads in Tacoma

By Nikki McCoy on October 9, 2013

If you find yourself thirsty for post-metal, heavy prog rock, look no further than Bob's Java Jive Saturday. 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.

BREAG NAOFA, w/Fang Chia, Moraine and God Hates Fads, 8 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 12, Bob's Java Jive, 2102 South Tacoma Way, Tacoma, $5, 253.475.9843
