LEAD INTO GOLD: Paul Ion Barker

 

Former Ministry bass player, singer, and producer Paul Ion Barker’s on-again, off-again solo project Lead Into Gold has been something of a sleeper cell over the last 28 years. But to anyone who’s well-versed in the perfectly caustic dance floor grooves of the old-school Wax Trax catalog, Barker is a household name. Now on the road playing songs from a brand new full-length, The Sun Behind the Sun, Barker brings his ominous traipse into a modern context with one of the most rewarding listens of the year for those with a discerning ear for creeping and sophisticated post-industrial atmosphere. OhGr from Skinny Puppy headlines. Los Angeles-based trip-hop/electronica songstress Mahsa Zargaran, aka Omniflux, also performs.

$25. 7 p.m. Fri., Sept. 7. Masquerade. 75 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive S.W. 404-577-8178. www.masq.com.
