DESTRUCTION UNIT
9 p.m. Vino's.


Here's an idea: Combine the ugly misanthropy of Poison Idea, the gloomy atmospherics of early Joy Division or maybe Christian Death and the primal, raging-id rawness of "Funhouse"-era Stooges, then go and slather all of it in sheets of sinister guitar violence and a paranoid psychedelic haze that recalls Syd's Pink Floyd.

If all of that sounds totally badass to you, then brothers and sisters, please drop what you're doing and go listen to Destruction Unit's newest album, "Deep Trip" and also their previous release "Void" and also their recent EP "Two Strong Hits." Then go see the band play at Vino's with Tropical Body, Ukiah Drag and the mighty R.I.O.T.S.
