Passionate indie-folk bard Bazan got out from under his original nom de strum, Pedro the Lion, with a pair of acclaimed solo albums, but now he's reclaiming his past. The Seattle singer is touring with a small band to mark the 10th anniversary of PTL's third album, "Control," a concept record about a cheating husband and murderous wife. Fun stuff. Opening band Stagnant Pools is a duo of brothers who recently toured with Japandroids. CHRIS RIEMENSCHNEIDER

THE SWORD

8:30 p.m. • First Avenue • 18-plus • $15

It's not the cover of Rolling Stone, but it's telling which magazine has a front-page spread on the Sword this month: Hails & Horns. The Texas quintet looks like another band of grizzly Austin hipsters but plays weed-smoky, irony-free, hard-thrashing metal that has earned mad respect in old-school circles. Their new album, "Apocryphon," has some of the band's most blistering jams to date, but these guys are always more impressive in concert. Bird-loving throwbacks Gypsyhawk and Eagle Claw open. C.R.
