  • Tonight’s lineup at the Vera Project could be hazardous to your perception of reality. Or at least that’s how it seems. Phil Elverum’s latest recording as Mount Eerie, Wind’s Poem, famously takes its inspiration from black metal. Performing on this tour with a band, some of the songs unsettlingly abandon Elverum’s recent traditions of introspection in favor of the sounds of the sky and trees splitting at their very fabric. When Yoni Wolf, of headliners, WHY? sings, the universe seems to bend and flutter in unexpected ways. More words than seem possible seem to fit and fold into spaces far too small without even slightly upsetting the linear course of engaging stories. It falls into some uncharted realm between hiphop and indie rock, compelling awestruck attention. $13, 7:30 pm, with No Kids. [veraproject]
