Hog, Fight Amp, Royal Knights

When: Wed., Oct. 24, 9:30 p.m. 2012

Fight Amp, a West Deptford, N.J., noise-sludge crew, bears a pugilistic chip on the shoulder. Yet their punishing volume and misanthropic energy—not to mention tricky, circuitous riffs—pits this band against its amps. Under these conditions, after all, gear gives out pretty easily. Durham's Hog is similarly thick and punishing, like a technical, occasionally transcendent prog outfit slogging through Southern waters. Despite both bands' maximalist volume and crunch, a stewing introversion remains central to their heaviness. Royal Knights open with absurd, shredful dude-rock. —Corbie Hill
