You can’t throw a stone in this town with hitting a band. And if you throw one at the Camel on Tuesday night, that figurative projectile will hit what is arguably the finest collection of here and now rock talent in the city (for this week, anyway). From the moody, post-rock ambience of Shy, Low to the electronic, indie-rock musings of Way, Shape or Form, all the bands (including the minimalist, Devo-inspired stage show of Those Manic Seas and October Wolves’ cinematic post-hardcore) share a clarity of vision and uniqueness of self that unites them in the post-rock present. The lone carpetbagger on the bill is New Jersey’s Au Revoir, but its spatial ambient drones will fit in seamlessly. The music starts at 9 p.m. at the Camel, 1621 W. Broad St. Admission is $5.
