Gray Young, True Womanhood, Gross Ghost

When: Thu., April 8, 9:30 p.m. 2010

Like a mid-aughts indie mixtape, this triple bill covers a lot of sonic territory without straying too far left of center. Opener Gross Ghost scrubs strong hooks with punk stutters and churning guitar noise, generating a lo-fi bristle that fits like a steel wool sweater. D.C.'s True Womanhood uses homemade instruments to create an array of textures and tones behind its pop songs. The trio's brand-new Basement Membranes EP, recorded at Brooklyn's Death By Audio, showcases both the band's ear for the experiments and its compulsion for melodies. Finally, Gray Young fills whatever space is left with tight, urgent post-rock that brims with confident crescendos and deliberate melodies. —Bryan Reed
