Danava 

When the psychedelic hard-rock band Danava first visited New Orleans last year on a tour that supported its 2006 eponymous debut album, it sounded a bit experimental, with six-minute-plus songs that melded old-fashioned metal with cosmic explorations, chanting and a touch of glam-punk. With the follow-up release, 2007's UnononU, it seems they've gone completely and joyfully over to the dark side, diving headlong into the folkloric spookiness of Black Sabbath. The new album offers a little fuzz, a little twitter, but mostly amped-up, anthemic fist-pumpers from metal's old school, complete with guitars spiraling out of control and an ominously baroque horror-film organ that swirls into psychedelia on the aptly named 'Where Beauty and Terror Dance." Danava shares the bill with the monstrously energetic Japanese psychedelic-rock collective Acid Mothers Temple, which turns walls of speedy guitar fuzz and wizardly electronic twitters into a transformative live experience. Tickets $10 in advance, $14 at the door. — Alison Fensterstock 10 p.m. Wed., March 19
