Blades, Don Cabellero, Animal

Local instrumentalists get things started for out-of-towners

 Blades could be mistaken for a post-hardcore band like Braid or Drive Like Jehu, or maybe the more recent math rockers Minus the Bear — that is, if they had a singer. The group eschews vocals. But don’t worry, Blades’s lyric-free songs are still entertaining. Each moves with a steady, rocking pace that will leave you thinking “Lyrics, who needs lyrics?” Blades warms up the audience today for Pittsburgh’s instrumental rock heavyweights Don Caballero and New York experimental duo Animal today. 9 p.m. The Proletariat, 903 Richmond Avenue. For information, call 713-523-1199 or visit $12 to $14.
Sat., Nov. 3, 9 p.m., 2007
