THE PINHOOK'S SEVENTH ANNIVERSARY

THE PINHOOK, DURHAM | FRIDAY, DEC. 11

When The Pinhook first opened in downtown Durham, the club seemed to be an oddity—a music outpost on a Main Street without many restaurants, clubs or bars at all. And now, seven years later, The Pinhook still comes off as an oddity—an esoteric, inclusive, affordable venue and de facto community center that existed before the city center's renaissance launched a real estate war. But Kym Register, The Pinhook's co-founder and now sole owner, also owns the building that houses her club; don't expect the space to shift any time soon. The room celebrates its anniversary with a righteous crew of bands, led by the great Philadelphia duo Trophy Wife. Diane Foglizzo and Katy Otto build prowling, loaded indie rock that surges beneath the weight of thick, dissonant riffs and heavy drums. Still, they may seem like a dénouement after Solar Halos, a Chapel Hill trio that walks the exciting line between post-rock catharsis and doom-metal malevolence. With Bad Friends. 9 p.m., $8, 117 W. Main St., Durham, 919-667-1100, www.thepinhook.com. —Grayson Haver Currin
