On Rheia the flexible Oathbreaker blend shoegaze, black metal, and postpunk

Wed 4/5, 8:30 PM, Subterranean, 2011 W. North, $14, $12 in advance, 17+

There's something for everyone in their rapid-shifting mixture of shoegaze dreaminess, black-metal vitriol, and postpunk abstraction-which means that there's sure to be something for everyone to dislike.
