You can learn a lot about Austin’s …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead when you take a forensic look at—well, its trail. Since joining forces in the mid-’90s, the band has presided over eight albums, numerous lineup changes, several stylistic left turns across the prog-psych-noise-rock continuum, and enough bar brawls and smashed guitars to fill a weekend police blotter. An awesomely intimate show from the apocalyptically-named AYWKUBTTOD, with a rejigged lineup and a relatively new, decidedly grungey melodicism added to their former tumultuous, percussion-heavy mix. Get ready for one gear-trashingly mental performance of its greatest album, Source Tags and Codes.
