Brief Lives, Revolving Beast, Bitter Resolve

When: Sun., June 1, 9 p.m. 2014

Richmond's Brief Lives have been playing in one form or another for five years, but the post-hardcore outfit's earned a recent surge in attention thanks to their new singer: Valient Thorr's livewire frontman Valient Himself. Brief Lives' existing catalog is a spare collection of punk sinew, not a far cry from that of fellow Richmond act Cloak/Dagger. It's not hard to imagine Himself's bellow ripping through those earlier tunes, but the band is reportedly taking a more psychedelic approach to new material. "It's basically me singing for a punk band that started writing stoner jams," Himself recently told the UK blog Thrash Hits. At Neptune's, Brief Lives leads an after-party for the Diarrhea Planet show upstairs at Kings; at The Cave, they're joined by Tar Heel heavies Revolving Beast and Bitter Resolve. —Bryan C. Reed
