CLUTCH
9 p.m. Juanita's. $22 adv., $25 day of.

According to my sources, the forthcoming Clutch album "Earth Rocker" is a more straight-ahead rocker, with any jamming tendencies reined in. I listened to the title track (the record's not out until March 19) and it's definitely a rocker. In their bio, the band members cite Professor Longhair as a big influence, along with Thin Lizzy, Motorhead, Fugazi and Bad Brains which, hell yes.

"Maybe people expected us to go more acoustic or bluesy, but this album definitely showcases a riffs-in-your-face kind of style," guitarist Tim Sult said. "These songs ended up being faster and a bit more rocking." Of course, it's still Clutch, so expect big, groove-heavy riffin' galore.

Openers are ultra-bitchin' British doom-meisters Orange Goblin, Lionize and Scorpion Child.
