Tonight: Awesome Color at the Mink

"Eyes of Light"

Damn. Wasn't that something? Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore indirectly turned me on to Awesome Color, a terrifying trio from the wilds of northern Michigan. AC is one of the artists on Moore's Universal-distributed label, Ecstatic Peace, and released the self-explanatory LP Electric Aborigines earlier this year. Seriously, the band's sound is much easier to describe than Sonic Youth's, and maybe anyone else's: Imagine the Stooges took way, way too much brown acid. That's it. Ready to have your face melted? - Chris Gray

With Paris Falls and Guitars, 9 p.m. tonight at the Mink's Backroom, 3718 Main, 713-522-9985. Tickets available at
