Anyone who’s ever said a cellist can’t rock the stage should pay a visit to Radio Radio this Friday night. Jackie Perez Gratz, the cellist in question, not only fronts Grayceon, the prog-rock trio gone wild, but is sitting in with Giant Squid.

Hipsters with their fingers on the pulse already know this, but Giant Squid is the band to see right now, and its album, Metridium Fields, has been just under the radar since its release last summer.

Without a doubt, the band should be filed under metal, and while comparisons to Isis are justified, it’s the horns, strings and a Phil Spector-sounding production quality that give this album a size 14 steel-toed boot that’s kicking the metal genre in the ass right now.

Indianapolis’ Llange, a spacey, mostly instrumental metal band, will open the show. Its self-titled CD is available now and highly recommended if you like your metal a little more chill.
