Retribution Gospel Choir has toyed with huge riffs—-perhaps in an attempt to sound distinct from its sister band, slowcore veterans Low—-but by many accounts, its latest album, 3, achieves rockness while preserving the gorgeous environments that Low constructed so well. D.C. supergroup Deathfix, whose new album on Dischord drops Feb. 25, opens. Retribution Gospel Choir performs with Deathfix at 9 p.m. at DC9, 1940 9th St. NW. $10.
