Twilighter, New Town Drunks

When: Fri., March 2, 10 p.m. 2012

Twilighter aren't Edward/ Isabella acolytes. The Triangle staple predate their vampire brethren, and their music bristles like they're insulted by the suggestion. The quintet's spindly art-punk suggests Gang of Four held under a faucet and beaten with a rolled-up Bauhaus tract. But for all the post-punk angularity, there's still room for hooky psychedelic pop on songs such as "Phantom Limb." Their inebriated counterparts, the New Town Drunks, give catchy, lighthearted irreverence a name; indeed, they emblazon it on a dog collar. Their "what me, worry?" lyrics dovetail nicely with strummy, racing rhythms, giving performances a "we're here, where's the party?" vibe. —Chris Parker
