Yamantaka//Sonic Titan

Basilica Hudson, Thursday


Canadian prog-punks Yamantaka//Sonic Titan exist somewhere beyond two of their prime influences: KISS and kabuki. The collective are notorious for their high-concept Montreal guerrilla shows, but this year they’ve begun to receive attention as a formidable recording force. Their second album, UZU, came out this week, so they’ll be riding high for Basilica Hudson’s Blakk Ballon. Joining the party will be Norwegian singer Jenny Hval, whose new album, Innocence Is Kinky, received considerable exposure thanks to provocative music-video treatment by Hudson’s Zia Anger. Also performing will be Tanz Praxis, featuring C. Lavender. (Oct. 31, 8 PM, $15, 110 South Front St., Hudson, 822-1050)
