Lurch

When: Sat., Aug. 6, 9 p.m. 2011

Lurch is an exercise in concision. Though the band is still operating without a proper release, the Bull City quintet earns its headlining slot tonight with sheer willpower. Drawing momentum from D-beat intensity, heft from Southern sludge and energy from thrash, Lurch crafts surging metal anthems with hardcore's urgency. It's that projected ferocity that lends songs like "People, Places and Things" the force of a crashing wave. Pink Flag, which trades in nervy but predictable post-punk, and Church of Zann, which boasts former members of Thunderlip and Valient Thorr, join the bill, promising a night of varied—if uniformly to-the-point—rock. —Bryan C. Reed

Price: $5-7
