CJ FIELD

GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR
North Adams, 8 p.m.
Godspeed You! Black Emperor began in Montreal in the early 1990s, and during five years they swelled from a bedroom trio to an earth-rattling, wall-of-sound experience with as many as 14 live musicians. The band’s first batch of records before a nine-year hiatus included 2000’s Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven, which is hailed as a modern post-rock classic. Their newest, Luciferian Towers, offers a melodic maturity that transcends even as it rumbles in the shadow of capitalism, climate change, and political violence. MASS MoCA
