The rain over the last few weeks has been welcome. But we are in the midst of a relative dry spell for live music. So Intronaut's recent announcement of their North American tour this April gives me some hope, as well an opportunity to make up for one of my biggest regrets of 2008 - missing the Nacthmystium show at Knitting Factory in October. Joining them opening for The Haunted will be Kylesa out of the gigantic Savannah scene. More like Baroness than Mastodon, I'm ready to hear the direction of their sound since they last visited Spaceland. This is a must-see. April 3rd at The Key Club.

Intonaut contributed a cover on Pink Floyd's first single, Arnold Layne, to Like Black Holes In Sky, a tribute to Syd Barrett that also includes contibutions from Kylesa, Jesu, Yakuza, Pentagram, Unearthly Trance, Circle and others. You can take a listen to the whole compilation for yourself at this site set up by local label, Dwell Records.
