You Shoot: Shrinebuilder at the Empty Bottle

If you missed Monica Kendrick's Critic's Choice, you maybe don't know that Shrinebuilder is a supergroup of heavy hitters from the underground metal scene: Scott "Wino" Weinrich is from Saint Vitus and Hidden Hand, Scott Kelly is in Neurosis, Al Cisneros is from Om and Sleep, and Dale Crover drums for the Melvins. I was at one of their two sets at the Bottle on Saturday. While I enjoyed being pummeled by their slow-motion death-blues, I also felt like the band is the metal version of Alien: Resurrection, where an ensemble cast made up of some of my absolute favorite people in their respective fields sets up expectations that can't reasonably be achieved.

If you'd like to see your photos show up here, submit them to the Reader's music Flickr group.
