Dragmatic, Old Quarter, Amigo

When: Sat., Dec. 5, 9 p.m. 2015

With a new LP, At Least We’re Not Dead Yet, Raleigh’s Dragmatic builds a bridge between alt-country and pop-punk. Songs brim with urgency only a few degrees removed from punk, but churning guitars supply determined twang. Pounding drums buttress Hammond organ swells and silvery pedal steel. Singer Ryan Kennemur’s voice—more husky than gravelly—is perhaps better suited to smoother pop-rock, but it fits Dragmatic’s approach (think Weezer playing alt-country) just fine. —Patrick Wall
