Verellen Amp Night

Verellen amps are the custom-built, low-end loving beauties designed and manufactured locally by Helms Alee frontman Ben Verellen. I really can’t say enough good things about Verellen himself; he’s a mad scientist/Viking with a huge heart and an even bigger brain. His handiwork is fetishized by players who appreciate his signature synthesis of warmth, depth and unfathomable volume, which typically means artists who traverse in material that is hard, heavy, or otherwise intricately noisy. Tonight’s bill includes Verellen’s own band, as well as Helms Alee drummer Hozoji Matheson-Margullis’ metal-minded duo, Lozen, and Verellen Amplifier investors Mico de Noche, whose new split 10” with Brothers of the Sonic Cloth is quite possibly one of the best local metal releases of the year. Given the small confines of the Rendezvous, earplugs are mandatory for this one. HANNAH LEVIN
