Polvo, Wild Wild Geese, Free Electric State

When: Sat., March 19, 10 p.m. 2011

Pretty much since Polvo went on hiatus in 1998, rumors about a reunion drifted through the Triangle. The rumors were of the usual variety—one of the '90s' best guitar rock bands, Polvo were supposedly planning to play someone's Raleigh basement; a Black Taj show at the old Kings was actually a front for a surprise Polvo gig. Thankfully, none of that ever happened. Instead, Polvo returned to the stage of the Cat's Cradle in 2008 and summarily went on to record maybe its best album ever and its first for Merge, In Prism. With Brylawski and Bowie's guitars spiraling around each other, and a rhythm section that stomped each beat into the floor, they'd rarely sounded so determined to be a proper rock 'n' roll band. The wait was worthwhile. —Grayson Currin
