Durham
The Diamond Center

The Pinhook—Richmond duo The Diamond Center suggests woozy Baltimore band Beach House reimagined as a wobbly folk troupe—the latter's lattice of keyboards replaced with splinters of western guitar lines, those gorgeous morphine female vocals traded for a distant country wail. The band's latest, My Only Companion, is at once calm and bothered, its brittle songs about painful places and people played out in slow motion. There's probably no better time to get lost in their tones than during the cold of winter, and this band doesn't seem like the sort that will be relegated to midweek, donation-at-the-door shows at small clubs much longer. Donate at 10 p.m. See www.thepinhook.com. —Grayson Currin


Raleigh
Technoiz with The Exmonkeys

The Pour House—The third installment of Technoiz, the monthly electro-industrial-dance-noise night at The Pour House organized by The ExMonkeys and Cheezeface, aligns area producer Orgavin with the founders. Orgavin's music puts springy, often minimal beats behind arrays of necrotic industrial textures. As with ExMonkeys, the rich sounds are just the starting point, though: He and they sculpt the stuff into narratives and epics that score races through city streets and conquests of dark hearts. Durham's Cheezeface will have none of that. His exhilarating, maddened noise-and-sample scrambles aim to scorch, burn and painfully please. The 9 p.m. show costs $6.
