Merchandise, Last Words

When: Wed., Sept. 5, 9 p.m. 2012

If opposites attract, this is a natural pairing. Last Words, the local hardcore band in the opening slot, wields righteous rage and ideologue tenacity, unloading short, stinging blasts like rounds from an assault rifle. Florida's Merchandise features former and current members of several similarly vicious hardcore acts, but that's not evident in the band's bleary come-down ballads (some of which stretch past 11 minutes). Their glaze of synthesizers over ringing guitar chords and low-end throb, along with Carson Cox's meandering Morrissey croon, suggest any number of dour British indie icons. —Bryan C. Reed
