We goofed: A blurb that ran yesterday said Arizona minimalist garage duo Acorn Bcorn would play Slim's on Thursday, Oct. 4. It was supposed to say Oct. 3.
This mistake has been corrected online, but the misprint still overshadows an excellent heavy bill booked at Slim's for tonight all along. Athens heavy four-piece Savagist may be from the home state of so much excellent Southern sludge, but there's an almost Motor City metal flavor to this punishing, muscled rock-metal. Chapel Hill's Bitter Resolve brings a fine hybrid of space-rock, proto-grunge and riff-metal. The local trio's sophomore record, The Early Interstellar Medium, is slated for release later this year or early next. The 10 p.m. show costs $5.
