Altaar at By:Larm (more)

Altaar aren't content with coming all the way from Norway just to level Austin three times (an appearance at the BrooklynVegan/Profound Lore show at Lovejoys on 3/19, the Profound Lore Official Showcase, and the Chaos in Tejas/Stereogum/Sacred Bones show). The Norwegian doom destroyers have added TWO last minute NYC dates this weekend, and a Boston show to boot! Altaar will join fellow Norwegians Deathcrush to play the Acheron in on 3/12 with Occultation, and Silent Barn on 3/13 with Explosive Improvised Device. From there they head to O'Brien's in Allston, MA for a 3/14 show before continuing to Texas.

BUT FIRST: Sten Ove Toft aka TOFT from Altaar will play a solo show TONIGHT (3/11) on an impressive bill that look like this:

1st: TOFT
2nd: Man Forever Duo (mems. of Oneida/Lone Wolf)
3rd: Tall Firs
4th: Scarcity of Tanks
5th: Chris Grier & Gibby Haynes (Butthole Surfers) Duo
The DIY show happens at 345 Eldert St. #218 in Brooklyn (L to Halsey), AND NOT AT Psychotropa as originally planned (Doors - 8pm, Show - 9pm, $8).

Some video and flyers for Altaar's SXSW dates, are below.

Not only that deathcrush band is a joke but it seems they come with a lot of candles and occultations in their show. This is not ordinary music but a real worship.
