Tonight! Cave In, The Reigning Sound, Dylan (Last Time), And Miles Benjamin Etc.
Massachusetts metalheads Cave In have had quite a varied career, vacillating from screamy hardcore to what Spin once dubbed "emo-metal Radiohead" (2000's Jupiter is indeed pretty righteous to not-quite-ascendant major-label hopefuls to... whatever they are now. They'll be it, whatever it is, tonight at the Knitting Factory. They do a pretty bitchin' "Dazed and Confused." Not joking.
Elsewhere, garage-r&b doggs the Reigning Sound are at Maxwell's in Hoboken (our chat with frontman Greg Cartwright here), sad-sack folkie Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson is at the Bell House (our chat with him here), Dylan finishes off his United Palace Theatre run (rad video here), and West-Africa-meets-the-American-South world-rockers Toubab Krewe play Santos' Party House.
