Japanese instrumental rock outfit Mono have been stringing together waves of distortion and pummeling rhythms for nearly two decades, managing to create dense orchestral compositions with just four people onstage. The group's latest album, Nowhere Now Here, was recorded at Chicago's Electrical Audio with engineer Steve Albini, who helped the quartet add electronics to its sonic palette while balancing the album's more subdued moments with the larger-than-life crescendos. Mono headlines an outdoor stage at Bohemian National Cemetary, joined by gothic folk rocker Emma Ruth Rundle and local industrial outfit Dim.
