Combichrist, an American band founded by a Norwegian, Andy LaPlegua, plays a sort of electro-industrial music called aggrotech (presumably from “aggressive” rather than “agriculatural”), a style that is far out on the edge of the industrial music flow chart but which, mosh comes to shove, is a kind of pissed-off EDM. The recordings are done entirely by LaPlegua alone in the studio but performed live with a band and apparently sell very well. The name came from a character in a fanzine LaPlegua put out in the 1990s. The band will be at the Vernon Club, along with William Control, Empyrean Asunder, Davey Suicide, Darksiderz and Shawna The Dead on Friday, October 24. Combichrist has a new album, We Love You, to play for you. Tickets to the show are $20.

The World’s Greatest Garage Band, a.k.a. NRBQ, stops in at Jim Porter’s Good Time Emporium on October 24. Of course, only Terry Adams is left from the original group but that’s really enough – his infectious energy and rampant chicanery is more than enough to drive any and all other musicians to the point of insanity that they can play with him. And, of course, NRBQ started in the Derby City with Terry and Steve Ferguson before heading to Florida where they added Frank Gadler, drummer Tom Staley and bassist Joey Spampinato to the roster. Despite having been signed to a few labels, they never achieved national success but did build a strong cult following, particularly in Louisville. The configuration that lasted the longest including Adams, Spampinato, Al Anderson and Tom Ardolino. (For a more complete history, head over to Wikipedia) Tickets to the show are $20 (Cheap!)

Here’s a recent performance of “Yeh Yeh”:
