Raleigh
RED COLLAR, FUTURE KINGS OF NOWHERE, HAMMER NO MORE THE FINGERS, ADAM THORN
DOWNTOWN EVENT CENTER—Red Collar hangs between the branches that hold Fugazi and Mission of Burma, like a ripe, Southern fruit sweetened slightly by pop and showmanship. Former 307 Knox labelmates The Future Kings of Nowhere sing of love and hate, trumpets, drums and frantic acoustic guitars bursting beneath by Shayne O'Neill's cry-of-lovers nasality. Hammer No More the Fingers grip indie rock icons with young fists, and Greensboro's Adam Thorn puts soul in his breezy power-pop. These Durhamites come to Raleigh at 10 p.m. To hear tracks from these artists, see this week's Get Out. —Grayson Currin
