Dirty Three

One band drew praise from everyone I talked to when I was in Australia--Melbourne's Dirty Three. The music of this unconventionally configured power trio--electric guitar, violin, drums, and no vocals--includes elegiac meditations, noirish mood pieces, and sulfurous punk outbursts. Determined to avoid being stereotyped, they play in a multitude of composed and improvised styles, but their passion and firm grasp of dynamics prevents them from ever sounding contrived. A Chicago debut. Tuesday, 9 PM, Lounge Ax, 2438 N. Lincoln; 525-6620. BILL MEYER
