Saturday night’s line-up at the Tea Bazaar is an unusual but promising mix. After several years of dormancy, Horsefang have returned, and their dusty, instrumental doom-metal riffs seem as vital as ever. They’re joined by Mike Gangloff, whose career oscillates between two unlikely poles: the rural twang of Appalachian traditionalism and the mind-expanding drones of late-20th-century modernist composers. Gangloff’s tenure in groups like the Spiral Joy Band and Pelt (along with the late Jack Rose) proved he’s a master of dense, long-form drones à la La Monte Young, but his work with the Black Twig Pickers proves he’s got serious old-time chops as well.

Saturday, February 23 $7, 8:30pm. Twisted Branch Tea Bazaar, 414 E. Main St. 293-9947.
