Raleigh
Exmortus
Volume 11 Tavern—California quartet Exmortus delivers a relentless mix of high-end British heavy metal (the dexterous dual guitars pierce like heated arrows) and thick, crusty, post-Slayer menace (the rhythm section sounds like concrete churned and amplified). Witness the 11 tracks of the band's brutal debut, In Hatred's Truth, which squirm, squeal and stampede like a two-ton stuck pig, bowling over obstacles and roaring with a ruckus. The melee begins at 8 p.m. —Grayson Currin



Raleigh
Woodwork Roadshow
The Pour House—With guitar, upright bass and mandolin, Columbia, S.C.'s Woodwork Roadshow offers acoustic pop with tinges of blues and bluegrass. Its singer-songwriter moments are fine, but the trio really hits its stride when it begins to shamble and not take itself too seriously. Recently reunited after a two-year break, Woodwork Roadshow released its second album this June. Hopefully, the group will continue to allow itself to rust in just the right places. Opener Owen Beverly plays sentimental, delicate, indie rock, while the Nick Zuber Band delivers the soft funk you'd expect to hear creeping from beneath closed dorm room doors late at night. The music's free, and it begins at 9 p.m. —Andrew Ritchey
