A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS is a modern-day torchbearer of the hypnotic, aural assault of shoegazer sights and sounds that dominated a small but memorable corner of indie rock in the 1990s. The Brooklyn trio's sound has more in common with the dreary guitar dirge of early Jesus and Mary Chain records than the sweet din of My Bloody Valentine's pleasantries. For its show at the Drunken Unicorn Sat., OCT. 18, expect nothing short of dark, skull-rattling waves of distortion and stress, accompanied by a deluge of stark lights and smoke. Atlanta's All the Saints and British indie-rock act Sian Alice Group also perform. $10. 9 p.m. 736 Ponce de Leon Place. www.thedrunkenunicorn.net.
