Fin Fang Foom, Airstrip

When: Sat., April 7, 10 p.m. 2012

These two projects come from distinct sub-genres—poetic post-punk and hook-driven indie- pop—to meet in an unlikely but welcome middle ground. Fin Fang Foom lightens the nihilistic grit of the former style with soaring post-rock guitars and driving hard-rock confidence; think a better-medicated Slint or maybe a more focused Mogwai. Where Foom dials back its style's gloom somewhat, Airstrip darkens precise, snappy indie pop with doom riffs and rhythms and damaged, dark lyrics. With members of respectable local bands like Veelee, Caltrop, Gross Ghost and Monsonia, Airstrip doesn't sound like a band that formed late last year. 10 p.m. —Corbie Hill
