Battle Rockets, Demon Beat, Rainbow Nerd

When: Tue., July 19, 9 p.m. 2011

This midweek show offers two doses of potent, contrasting rock energy. Battle Rockets' brutal post-rock instrumentals rumble with stern-faced aggression. West Virginia band the Demon Beat toes the line between the heady tones of '90s indie rockers such as Built to Spill and the outsize antics of '70s arena greats like The Who. Rock 'n' roll shuffles explode into abandon and burn with furious, warped distortion, while singer Adam L. Meisterhans launches and lands precise, gruff-voiced hooks. Rainbow Nerd, a new collaboration featuring members of Hammer No More the Fingers and Lost in the Trees, opens. —Jordan Lawrence
