Sept. 24 — black midi at the Wiltern
UK-based trio black midi will bring their experimental blend of progressive rock, punk and trip hop to the Wiltern on Saturday, Sept. 24. black midi’s new album, Hellfire, was released on July 15th via Rough Trade. The album is a first-person tale of morally devoid individuals making questionable choices at best and downright horrific ones at their worst. With biting monologues that pit us against our own preclusions of morality and plenty of intense rock instrumentals, Hellfire builds off of the intensity and straightforwardness of the band’s earlier work.
Black Country, New Road will open. The show is all-ages.
