Russian Circles

The heavy stuff—extreme bands—usually skip over Ann Arbor in favor of Detroit, if they play the Midwest at all. Instrumental art-metal trio Russian Circles, however, are from Chicago, so they have some empathy for the region. Maybe that’s why they’re bringing their gorgeous longform sonic jams to The Blind Pig. Their heavy-riff style of music evokes the psychedelia of Pink Floyd and the interweaving rhythms of Tool. The show comes in support of their critically acclaimed 2013 album, Memorial, which received positive press from NPR and Rolling Stone.

9pm. $16. The Blind Pig, 208 S. 1st St. 734-996-8555. blindpigmusic.com
