What to Do Tonight: Lair of the Minotaur

Chicago-based thrashers Lair of the Minotaur have always pursued their own path. Choosing to emphasize raw power over technical precision, their albums are filled with the sound of picks on strings and guttural roars from guitarist and singer Steven Rathbone, bone-shattering drums from Chris Wozniak and down-tuned bass from Nate Olp. Every riff Lair of the Minotaur write is intended for one purpose: to get headbanging dudes to shout, “That was fucking awesome!” Their fourth album, Evil Power, doesn’t break the pattern. Listeners who like their favorite bands to progress might find this disappointing, but folks who want to hit a show and see a band totally slay every living thing in the room will be very happy indeed. They play Peabody’s , with Solpsist and Horror Madonna opening at 7 p.m. Tickets: $6. —Phil Freeman
