Oakland art rock band Grex comes home to round out its 10th Anniversary Tour. Plus: sublime sights & sounds from improv ensemble Hare and Arrow and the relentless heaviness of electronic duo Jeweled Snakes.

Grex // /
Grex is an art rock band based out of Oakland, California. Grex has been called "essential current-and-future listening" (Tiny Mix Tapes), exploring the meeting point between psychedelic pop/rock and the dark outer reaches of noise and free jazz. The band recalls the explosive power of late John Coltrane, the dark energy of Suicide, and the whimsical weirdness of Skeleton Crew and Deerhoof. In biological terms, “grex” refers to the aggregation of a multitude of tiny, amoeba-like creatures combining to create a superorganism. Grex (the band) works the same way: two musicians who can function as one, the whole greater than the sum of its parts.
