Blank Bodies, Claw, Holder's Scar, Blackball

When: Sat., Jan. 30, 9 p.m. 2016

Colorado’s Blank Bodies and Maryland’s Claw share an affinity for blown-out guitars and D-beat rampages, making their shared approach to hardcore feel unstoppable. Blank Bodies’ 2015 demo runs through five forceful tracks in about as many minutes. Claw’s December EP feels like the more volatile outing, with pointed feminist politics pushed through heavy reverb. Greensboro’s ascendant Holder’s Scar offers a more agile take on the genre, generating riffs that bob and weave like a prizefighter. The Raleigh-and-Richmond gang Blackball and Raleigh’s Drugcharge hold down the undercard with equal ferocity, with riffs that pack more clarity. —Bryan C. Reed
