THIS WEEKEND IN MUSIC: Helms Alee, The English Beat, Roger Clyne

Posted By on Fri, Mar 29, 2013 at 3:54 PM


By day, Ben Verellen is an engineer by trade, hand-building custom amplifiers — some of the loudest in the business — for bands like Minus the Bear, Against Me and Sick of It All.

And with the rest of his time, he plays in a band called Helms Alee: a confounding, skin-tingling heavy rock band which has wooed critics with their angular, out-of-nowhere tracks. They’ve toured with giants like Torche and Big Business, and were named Best Metal Band by Seattle Weekly in 2011. Read more about Verellen and Helms Alee here, and see him perform tonight at Mootsy's with Hooves, Aranya and Mercy Brown. ($5, 21 and up, show starts at 8 pm.)
