With Chris Brokaw, 8 p.m. Sunday, October 14, at Fitzgerald's, 2706 White Oak, 713-862-3838 or www.fitzlivemusic.com.
Instrumental post-rockers (is there any other kind?) Mono have made a name for themselves all over the Earth as titanic mood-shifters, across six albums of emotionally charged swells and crashes. As the band has grown over the past decade, they have slowly set aside loud, headphone-ready blasts for elegiac, string-laden expanses. Their newest album, For My Parents, opens with the stirring 12-minute "Legend," which was used for a music video detailing the almost-alien landscapes of Iceland. If last month's Swans show at Fitz got your rocks off, then you should be at this one too.
