Zombi, Taiga, Alex Barnett 

When: Fri., Nov. 29, 9:30 p.m. 2013
Price: $15, $12 in advance
Pittsburgh duo Zombi haven’t toured in damn near seven years, but when bassist and synth player Steve Moore and drummer Anthony Paterra got the opportunity to schlep around the country for a dozen days with Italian prog soundtrack masters Goblin (they don’t meet up till after Zombi’s Chicago date, alas), it was clearly time to start packing the Moogs. The tour also serves to promote a series of reissues from Relapse, Zombi’s label for nearly a decade—it’s giving the deluxe-vinyl treatment to the heart of the band’s impressive catalog, Cosmos (2004), Surface to Air (2006), and Spirit Animal (2009). Zombi will undoubtedly perform tracks from those three albums, as well as from their most recent full-length, 2011’s Escape Velocity—like its predecessors, it’s filled with looping soundscapes and haunting space-station adventures that could (and should) score a Guillermo del Toro remake of The Neverending Story. —Kevin Warwick Taiga and Alex Barnett open.
