Algernon Cadwallader and Mose Giganticus at DDG March 10

Algernon Cadwallader and Mose Giganticus at DDG March 10

Maybe it's a little hard to ignore the Kinsella brothers influence with Algernon Cadwallader. Many will tell you they sound like Cap'n Jazz, and the truth of the matter is, well, they do. But one quick listen to these songs, and there's clearly so much more! Elaborate guitar lines serpentine around impassioned vocals to result in something more complex and refined than their forebears, but just as immediate. And then there's Mose Giganticus, whose claim to fame - heavy metal and hardcore accompanied by retro keyboards - may seem a little odd at first, until you realize we're talking about two very 80's things right here, and it's quite perfect. "Days of Yore" almost gets into doom metal territory, with its slow, crushing riffs, while some tracks, like "My Machine", even sport a vocoder. Put these two acts in the Danger Danger Gallery with Providence, RI's Math the Band and you have quite an interesting night. Danger Danger Gallery, 5013 Baltimore Ave., 8 pm, $5 donation, All Ages myspace.com/algernoncadwallader, myspace.com/mosegiganticus - Joe Poteracki
