A pair of '90s post-hardcore staples take over the Masquerade's Heaven stage Friday night. Glassjaw and Quicksand are on the road together. In 2017, both groups broke years of silence by releasing new records. Quicksand’s Interiors and Glassjaw’s Material Control are vital, visceral chapters in both bands' respective catalogs. Now they're touring the country together on a victory lap. For their Masquerade stop, they share the stage with rising stars Blis. Bring ear plugs. This is bound to be a white-hot riff fest.

$29.50 (adv). 6:30 p.m. (doors). Masquerade, 75 MLK Jr. Drive SW. 404-577-8178. www.masq.com.
