Arriver Photo

Arriver played a tremendous show last night at the Empty Bottle, as part of a full-on heavy bill of some of Chicago's finest. Alma Negra also ruled, as always; I finally got to see Planetexploder do their stoner/psychedelic low-end ritual; and Beak brought a level of crushing intensity that makes the post-metal tag seem irrelevant with them. Great night! Mariah Karson took tons of great shots of Arriver and I easily chose the least amazing one, which she will be pissed about, simply because I wanted to include a full group shot, even though her close ups are each mini works of art.
