KYLESA, PINKISH BLACK
8 p.m. Downtown Music Hall. $12 adv., $15 day of.


Kylesa has deep roots in the fertile musical ground of Savannah, Ga. The band has been around for more than a decade, and formed out of the ashes of '90s crust/hardcore greats Damad (whose "Rise and Fall" is a touchstone of sludgy Southern hardcore). As with many of the group's peers, Kylesa has taken sounds from outlying genres (psychedelia, shoegaze) and worked them into its overall downtuned, heavy sound.

The band is on tour with Fort Worth duo Pinkish Black, whose recent sophomore album "Razed to the Ground" is a further refinement of their foreboding sound. The new album is a bit more on the death-rock side of things, though with moments of unnerving synth drone that churns like Tangerine Dream's psychotic cousin.
