Metz, Odonis Odonis, Ben Davis & the Jetts

When: Sat., April 20, 9 p.m. 2013

Two of Canada's best rock 'n' roll exports this decade, Metz and Odonis Odonis use loads of volume and sheets of sound toward remarkably different ends. On last year's great debut, Wet Blanket, Metz used the heft of shoegaze and the tonal quiver of Spacemen 3 to rip through triumphant browbeaters three minutes at a time. They are loud like a jet and loaded like a spring. Odonis Odonis doesn't write longer songs, per se, but their saturated psych rock defers some of Metz's need to deliver sudden gratification. They'll take a shrieking solo after a big hook rather than return to it or snap the song shut, inviting you to get lost—at least for a spell. In the opening slot, Ben Davis & the Jetts deliver appropriately urgent and overloaded blasts. Metz previews the night's show with a free 3 p.m. gig at Schoolkids in Raleigh for Record Store Day.—Grayson Currin
