Earth Engine Staff Pick

When: Sun., Aug. 18, 7 p.m. 2019
Price: $7-$10
Lovers of robust, spastic prog-rock, look no further than Detroit seven-piece Earth Engine. Take the outfit’s 2016 self-titled EP, which channels King Crimson if they were to collaborate with Muse on some hyper-theatrical posthumous Jeff Buckley B-sides — and this comes as a high compliment, for the semi-elusive band that is more genre-twisting than genre-bending. Though the band boasts a seven-member lineup, Earth Engine manages to do something most layered, prog-rockers struggle to master. Earth Engine never sounds heavy-handed or over-worked: its sound is a seamless whole rather than a sum of parts. Boston-based Space Junk Is Forever is also on the bill, as well as Just Plurals and a brand-new band via Now With Real Humans.
