Protomartyr @ The Blockhouse 1/22

A blitz of roiling and inscrutable coolness is crashing upon Blockhouse this Friday night. They’re called Protomartyr, and they’re raucous in all the right ways.

Fresh off a European excursion, the Detroit post-punk ascendants will be performing in Bloomington on the third stop of their 2016 U.S. tour. With the release of their latest œuvre, The Agent Intellect, heads and loyalties have multiplied for Protomartyr. As a band possessed of artistic prowess and prized humor inside the studio and out, their live performances are like sorcery, draping the room with dance, fire and the peeling happiness of mammals.

Booked by Winspear Music, the show will feature support from Amanda X and Bloomington locals, Daguerreotype. Doors at 8 p.m., music at 9 p.m. Tickets are available for $11.54.
