Called "startlingly unique" after the release of their 1975 debut single, "30 Seconds Over Tokyo," Cleveland-bred art-punk legends Pere Ubu combined elements of Black Sabbath–style metal dirge with dub and oddball rock experimentation to redefine left-field music. Led by David Thomas, Mark E. Smith's rival for curmudgeonly behavior, Pere Ubu moved straight past Ramones-core, ’77-style punk and helped pave the way for post-punk's admirable idiosyncrasies. On last year's tour, the band delivered Dub Housing–era favorites, medieval-looking horn instruments, and stunning art-rock atmospheres. While onstage at the Crocodile, Thomas abruptly stopped mid-set for a smoke break: "It'll be much faster if you clear a path," he told the audience. And we did.
