Local Band Local Beer: Hammer No More the Fingers, Ghostt Bllonde, Doc Aquatic

When: Thu., Jan. 7, 9 p.m. 2016

With the start of 2016, Local Band Local Beer—the weekly series that’s offered an often very good bill of three or so bands for free in downtown Raleigh for a decade—begins its second act in earnest at a new venue. Tir Na Nog, the Irish pub that launched the series in 2006, closed in November and shuttled the shows two doors down to The Pour House. Tonight’s bill is a great start for the new beginning: Hammer No More the Fingers doesn’t get out as much as it used to, but the group’s playful, harmony-heavy indie rock still twists and turns itself into charming shapes. The trio remains a thrill to see. The songs of Ghostt Bllonde, meanwhile, exist in the same post-Spector haze that The Love Language always embraced; they’re best when they punch through it. The great young Asheville outfit Doc Aquatic, which takes the first slot, conjures the sleepy atmospherics and beguiling coo of early Woods records. —Grayson Haver Currin
