Avant-doom masters King Woman and instrumental power trio Russian Circles have joined forces on a country-wide US tour, selling out venues left and right. It’s no wonder, because both of these bands make music heads and tails above what most other genre-crossing heavy bands are putting out these days.
King Woman have recently signed on with Sargent House management, the long time home of Russian Circles and a ton of other amazing bands, and this tour seems to be a coming out party for them, putting them in front of bigger audiences and opening new ears to their deeply emotional and moving musical expression.
Russian Circles play the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco every time they come through town, and it’s a perfect venue for them. Classic, ornate and artful, the hall comes alive with a beauty and fullness when they perform that is a treat to experience.
