Prizehog, Royal Nites, Shadows, Tim Ledwith & Trent Bowles

When: Wed., April 24, 9 p.m. 2013

Harvey Milk is a band from Athens, Ga., that has long specialized in oblong and eccentric rock 'n' roll that invokes stoner metal, math-rock and a jester's sense of misdirection. They're named, of course, for the San Francisco politician and gay rights activist. The cross-country conversation continues with San Fran's Prizehog, a co-ed Bay Area trio that emboldens Harvey Milk's sinew with Melvins-sized distortion and rhythmic wallop. They shift from mid-tempo plod, no-tempo drone and accelerated death metal impasses, imparting a sense of sea-legs whiplash with their righteous sense of restlessness. Royal Nites close, while the promising new Demon Eye opens. —Grayson Currin
