Oxbow, one of the most unique bands from northern California made a stop in Somerville on their tour. Their blend of avant-garde jazz, classical and just plain noise rock took ONCE Ballroom by a storm. Front man Eugene Robinson combined singing and shouting at the crowd, while he stripped out of some of his suit on stage without going too far. They are definitely worth seeing, look out for them next year as it will mark their 30th year as a band. Opening the show were New England based instrumental prog-math-jazz-rock quartet The Cancer Conspiracy. They played a show a few months ago at Great Scott in Boston, they haven't missed a beat since going on hiatus in 2003. It was great to see them back.
