This absolutely packed – and Latinx-heavy – hardcore bill on the Sabbath this week is helmed by Austin, Texas’ furiously kinetic Criaturas. And they’re more than reason enough to make it a late night. The group – boasting members from Vaaska, Impalers and Kurrakä – is just so vibrantly in-the-moment with their music and message: sociopolitically astute Spanish-language lyrics delivered with over-the-edge ferocity married to a grinding, chaotic sound that combines d-beat disorder with thrashy focus and precision. Fast. Furious. Immediate.
