Don Caballero showcases its gut-crunching rock and complex, layered rhythms in Punkgasm, its second album since reforming, following World Class Listening Problem on Relapse in 2006.
As we hit town this weekend to catch a pair of hard-hitting rock bands (Don Caballero and These Arms are Snakes), we’ll also venture to see a left-field production of hip hop and synth-flavored post-rock (Yoome), boundless pseudo-soundtrack work (Andreas Kapsalis Trio), and a blend of dub, reggae, electronics, and rock (The Eternals).

Here’s a list of tours on our radar, including dates from The Bad Plus, Fucked Up, Orange Tulip Conspiracy, P.O.S., Secret Chiefs 3, Young Widows, and more.
Instrumental math-rock gurus Don Caballero are hitting the road again in February, playing select dates around the Midwest, Texas, and out West. All shows will include quirky Toronto rockers DD/MM/YYYY, and some will include the melodic 8-bit rock of sBACH. Check out the tour dates after the jump.
