Bitter Resolve, Lurch, Savagist

When: Sat., Aug. 13, 10 p.m. 2011

Being able to actually hear the day after a rock concert is for the weak, right? If you answered yes, this underground engagement with three metal bands who thrive on ultra-distorted, mid-tempo marches is your essential weekend stop. Traveling four-piece Savagist maintains the tradition of humid, relentless Athens acts (recently, like Harvey Milk and Pride Parade), delivering tunes that are more malevolent and aggressive than meticulous and evolved. Durham's Lurch, on the other hand, offers a complicated distillation of Southern sludge and more evolved styles, from bristling death metal to charging stoner rock. Chapel Hill trio Bitter Resolve suggest '70s rock lords returned to dominate, with a mix of Hawkwind, Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath meant for ascendance. —Grayson Currin
