Oh gosh, where does one start here? Deafheaven blasts strikingly beautiful melodies and an emotionally-wrought balance of goth, hardcore and black metal. The group is on the road supporting its latest album, Ordinary Corrupt Human Love (ANTI-)

Drab Majesty, the neo-goth, post-punk powerhouse moniker of Los Angeles-based Deb DeMure, is the real gem of this survey of the dark side. Uniform from New York City also performs.

$18. 7 p.m. Wed., July 18. The Masquerade (Hell). 75 MLK Jr. Drive SW. 404-577-8178.
