Big Business, House of Lightning, Thunderlip 

When: Thu., Oct. 4, 9:30 p.m. 2012
Price: $10-12

Seattle's Big Business exists in the Pacific Northwest's healthy, hard-and-reckless tradition that has produced the Melvins and Karp—in fact, the band includes members of both. And there's plenty of noisy down-tuning here, but Big Business prefers a more muscled, melodic crunch to Melvins' grimy, rattling dump truck-o'-punk-metal. And there's even a taste of Don Caballero to drummer Coady Willis' asymmetrical approach. This mix of loud-ass caveman-rock and top-shelf musicianship hits its apex in "Guns," the shouted lyrics of which simply read, "Guns are better than everything else!" House of Lightning features members of early and aggressive Florida metal outfit Floor; they take the middle slot. Wilmington's Thunderlip opens. —Corbie Hill
