Embarking on a small tour commemorating its twentieth anniversary as a band, the unrelenting and ominous-sounding Season to Risk, from Kansas City, was part of the early wave of bands to mix electronics and experimental hardcore. Peers of like-minded acts Drive Like Jehu and the VSS, Season to Risk shares a similar aesthetic of driving heaviness and burning atmospheres. Sounding a bit like the Jesus Lizard fronted by a Damaged-era Henry Rollins, these guys actually had a bit part in the pre-Apocalyptic movie Strange Days. Like those of its hardcore brethren, Season to Risk's lyrics are pointed in their social criticism, but its music can be heard in the noise-rock bands of the past two decades. This is a fiery act live, so there's no risk involved in expecting a memorable experience at this show.
