Archers of Loaf, Pipe, Fan Modine 

When: Fri., May 11, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $20

If you've yet to see Archers of Loaf since the band's 2011 reunion, this weekend affords an opportunity to rectify that error. In the '90s, the Archers were the most angular and aggressive of Chapel Hill's indie rock exports—as kinetically catchy as Superchunk and as enchantingly skewed as Polvo. Tensile riffs clashed like clanging swords behind Eric Bachmann's gritty groans of postmodern disillusionment. Archers' attack is just as sharp today as the band roars through their catalog with the kind of irreverent energy expected from musicians half their age. Pipe and Fan Modine open the Haw River Ballroom show. — Jordan Lawrence
