Scuzz-rockers RITVALS continue a monthlong series of band-curated Wednesday night shows at lo-fi-glitzy Prince Avenue joint Go Bar with a particularly strong lineup of local and touring talent. In the former category are rollicking, baby-faced rockers Monsoon, whose long-awaited debut full-length is reportedly near completion, and bombastic fuzz-monsters Shade—the lone but welcome oddball on the upcoming AthFest comp—whose recent and terrific Pipe Dream LP melded Sabbath-esque doom with psychedelic, Middle Eastern-inspired melody. The latter is populated by upstart Chicago four-piece Ne-Hi, whose washed-out indie rock calls to mind Canadian post-punk purveyors like Women and Each Other but with a distinctly American sneer. DJ Hot Wax closes out the night with a set of punk and garage jams.
