It’s almost certain you’ve never before seen a live act like San Diego’s Author & Punisher. Tristan Shone, the man behind the industrial doom project, is a practicing robotics engineer with a formal education in sculpture and an urge for apocalyptic sounds. And Author & Punisher – a convergence of music, design and heavy machinery – is the synthesis of all these muses. With an elaborate performance rig of rhythm machines, droning synths and electromechanical masks all devised and fabricated by Shone himself, this is heaviness that’s not just sonic but material. When he mans the apparatus, it’s like real-life Iron Man shit but with a dark Mad Max heart. It’s a one-of-a-kind setup that’s sure to be visually stunning and aurally crushing. Show up early to catch the spectral dread of Portland’s Muscle and Marrow and the noisy terror of Orlando’s Ad Nauseum. 

Author & Punisher with Muscle and Marrow, Ad Nauseum | 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 10 | Will’s Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave. | willspub.org | $10-$12
