Red Collar, Temperance League, Hammer No More the Fingers

When: Sat., Dec. 19, 9 p.m. 2015

Once a regular headliner and ascendant export, the Durham post-punk band Red Collar has performed only in spurts since releasing Welcome Home more than three years ago. Red Collar always managed to turn resignation into defiant optimism, earning a sweaty crowd ready to shout back at the stage. Like a friend who moved away, Red Collar’s occasional visits are, at this point, tinged with nostalgia. But rather than dwell on the past, the band seems ever ready to just pick up where they left off. Hammer No More The Fingers, whose idiosyncratic and playful indie rock followed much the same arc, returns, too. Charlotte pub rockers Temperance League open with Springsteen/Strummer bombast. —Bryan C. Reed
