Arbouretum & Pontiak at Cafe Bourbon Street

Staff Writer

Two of Thrill Jockey's lesser-known East Coast representatives combined for an LP called "Kale" in 2008, and now they're joining forces again for a tour where Krautrock influence abounds. For Baltimore's Arbouretum, it unfolds in gnarly folk rock from dirt-encrusted fingernails. Virginia's Pontiak takes the psych approach, all rumbling bass and stoic riffage.

When: 9 p.m. Friday, May 21

Where: Cafe Bourbon Street, Campus
