Brainbows, Amber Alerts, Gardens, Shephards

When: Fri., June 17, 9:30 p.m. 2011

Durham's Brainbows make the kind of punk that bounces around your head as well as it does a mosh pit. Their tones are only softly distorted, instruments creating conflict through melodic spark and dexterity rather than force. The snot-nosed vocals seem less angry than pensive. Detroit's Gardens are more explosive, riding pretty typical garage arrangements but bursting forth in wave after wave of tenacity. Atlanta's Shepherds upholster their punk frame with dense shoegaze-y fuzz and vocals that follow tuneful classic rock pathways. —Jordan Lawrence
