THIS WEEK’S BEST BET:

Cinemechanica
w/ Motherfucker, The Purkinje Shift
Saturday, November 22
529 – 529 Flat Shoals Avenue in Atlanta 30316
Admission $7

Of the few bands in these parts that I would deem mandatory to watch live, here are three, gathered and primed for your viewing/listening pleasure this Saturday night at 529. Two veteran units (Cinemechanica and The Purkinje Shift) doing their best to corral and master their chaotic inclinations, and one trio of wild-eyed newcomers (Motherfucker) looking to land gut punches galore. Their mutually ground is wide, long and significant; namely, power, volume, and, most importantly, a maniacal determination to push their talents to the brink, to cast aside fear and doubt in order to tangle with forces both illuminating and destructive. And really, what more could you want in a rock show?
