The list of dark musical acts with which Carla Bozulich has associated reads like the Necronomicon’s table of contents. Early-’90s alt-rock band Ethyl Meatplow (famous for the particularly tasteful track “Devil’s Johnson”) and damaged, dusty Americana act Geraldine Fibbers are but two of her more well-known musical associations. Hailing from Los Angeles, where punk and Hollywood theatricality collided to give birth to deathrock, Bozulich has hardly remained consigned to a single subgenre. Most recently, recording under the moniker of Evangelista, she brought, among others, members of Godspeed You! Black Emperor into the studio. There are a lot of different ways to make frightening music, and decades since she began playing, Bozulich is still exploring new ones. Carla Bozulich’s Evangelista performs with Garland of Hours, Tom Greenwood & Joanne Robertson, and Vampire Hands at 9:30 p.m. at the Velvet Lounge, 915 U St. NW. $10. (202) 462-3213.
