Mogwai

Exactly one week after fellow post-rock trailblazers Slint enjoyed a classic Mill City Night, the Glaswegian quintet known as Mogwai comes to town. The group — beloved for its sprawling guitar jams, bleak worldview and grab-bag of ambient effects — has been ambitiously rocking since 1995, releasing albums with inspired titles (“Come on Die Young,” “Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will”) at a steady clip. The latest, January’s “Rave Tapes,” earned the veteran boundary-testers high marks from critics. Opening is arty Pittsburgh musician/composer Majeure. Jay Boller
