Nuclear Power Pants, The T's

When: Wed., July 14, 10 p.m. 2010

Nuclear Power Pants claim dual citizenship in Baltimore, Md., and Providence, R.I. If you've followed trends in independent music over last decade, that should tell you something: NPP delivers the vibrancy and kineticism of Lightning Bolt's Providence and Dan Deacon's Baltimore. Loud colors and frantic shapes form the visual aesthetic, while misfit sound collages and skewed pop structures form the musical one. NPP, though, steers clear of Lightning Bolt's metallic intensity and Deacon's cartoonish whimsy. Their sound is like an ADHD meditation, bearing a tangential similarity to the art-rock chants of Oregon's Old Time Relijun, minus the granola spirituality, plus some highlighters and strobe lights. Straight ahead Raleigh rockers The T's play the foil at 10 p.m. —Bryan Reed
