The UK band formerly called This Town Needs Guns, and known by its shorter acronym since the release of 2013 sophomore album 220.127.116.11.0, plies math rock influenced by the likes of Owls and The Mars Volta. The intricate, propulsive instrumental passages are imbued with more melody than the former, and less ball-busting heaviness and experimentation than the latter, with vocals that retain that ‘90s emo quality. TTNG is joined by two Sargent House labelmates on this tour: ethereal folk songstress Emma Ruth Rundle and Mylets, the rock-looping solo project of Henry Kohen. 7 p.m., Crowbar, Ybor City, $13.
