TRASH TALK, LEE BANNON, RATKING

KINGS, RALEIGH | THURSDAY, FEB. 26

From the snapshot of Public Enemy sporting Minor Threat tees to the Beastie Boys' evolution from Polly Wog Stew to Paul's Boutique, the intersections of hip-hop and punk have already spawned a thousand thinkpieces. While Trash Talk's rather reverent jolts of hardcore purism betray no direct hip-hop influence, their associations do. They've collaborated with ex-Black Flag mouthpiece Keith Morris and opened for Lil B. And as their star rose in 2011, Trash Talk found kinship with fierce rap collective Odd Future, whose label released the LA punks' acclaimed 2012 LP, 119. The same link ties Trash Talk to touring co-headliners Ratking, a New York hip-hop trio whose 2014 album So It Goes built from the bleak boom-bap of their Big Apple forebears. The Sacramento producer Lee Bannon mines hardcore aggression using hip-hop's toolkit; he opens. 8:30 p.m., $13–$15, 14 W. Martin St., Raleigh, 919-833-1091, kingsbarcade.com. —Bryan C. Reed
