SHARE This weekend: the Black Angels & the Warlocks; Nachmystium

If its a demented evening of decadent, feedback-drenched, velvet-laced death-rock you want, youd be hard pressed to find a more satisfying double bill than the one at Logan Square Auditorium, 2539 N. Kedzie, starting at 9 tonight and featuring Austins exquisite Black Angels and the only slightly less awesome Warlocks. The cover is $15 in advance or via www.emptybottle.com, but dont even think of going if you arent wearing black.

Evolving from its black-metal roots to become simply one of the most inventively heavy bands working any genre today, Nachtmystium headlines a fine bill at Reggies Rock Club, 2109 S. State, starting at 6 p.m. tomorrow. The openers are the likeminded and almost as thunderous Yakuza, Minsk and (Lone) Wolf and Cub. Tickets are $10; for more information, call (312) 949-0121 or visit www.reggieslive.com.
