WXYC Backyard Barbecue with Caltrop, Black Skies, Fin Fang Foom

When: Sun., Nov. 18, 5 p.m. 2012

Sponsored by WXYC's "Backyard Barbecue," this showcase digs into Chapel Hill's fertile hard rock underground. Black Skies solidify dense Southern sludge, fissuring their weighty distortion with quick and concussive riffs. Caltrop's music is more spacious. Tangled guitars inspired equally by blues and prog soar to incredible heights despite the group's leaden tones; it's the aural equivalent of the butterfly-winged rhino that adorns the band's most recent album cover. Depending on ominous spaces between guitar and keys, Fin Fang Foom is sleekest in its aggression. Massive shoegaze riffs are given focus through tenacious rhythms and throbbing bass. —Jordan Lawrence
