Saturday To-Do: Dub Trio

Posted By on Fri, Dec 12, 2008 at 2:03 PM



DUB TRIO
9:30 p.m., Juanita's. $7.

It's not a combination you hear every day. Dub Trio mixes noise metal with dub. That is, discordant rock with studio knob twiddling to emphasis bass and drums and often add echo and reverb. The largely instrumental band grew from Actual Proof, a drum-and-bass-ish band of Berklee College of Music grads. It's members — DP Holmes (guitar, keyboards), Stu Brooks (bass, keyboards) and Joe Tomino (drums, melodica) — have long been in demand as session players in hip-hop, lending their chops to everyone from Common to Tupac. That shines through in spots. A song on the band's latest, “Another Sound,” finds the trio recreating legendary producer J. Dilla's kick-snare patterns. But more often than not, Dub Trio goes hard, with sludgy, distortion-laced rock a la the Melvins, and then, with nary a warning, the group gets all King Tubby, slowing the music down to a stony, bass-heavy creep. It's music to thrash and sway to. From Denton, Oso Closo play pop-rock built on nimble, jazz-inflected guitar work (by, in part, a lady named Lindsey Miller). They open along with Conway's the Rollin' Jack Dandies, who used to go by Modal Wayward. The concert is open to ages 18 and older.
