Throttlerod / Mess with the Bull

9 p.m. Tuesday, May 22. Way Out Club (2525 South Jefferson Avenue).


While May's annual stoner-rock festival Emissions from the Monolith completes the move from Youngstown, Ohio, to the higher-profile (and perhaps more fitting) Austin, Texas, punk club Emo's, a few Emissions bands are leaving their own nationwide vapor trail via a mini-tour leading up to the big date. Sounding varying degrees removed from Black Sabbath via Sir Lord Baltimore, Throttlerod and Mess with the Bull also have another common thread: the formidable psych-doom act Scissorfight. (The latter features Scissorfight alumni; the former shares a producer with the band.)
