Music worth leaving the house to hear this week

Wolf Eyes with Emil Beaulieau and Lil' Virgin Sacrifice
Wednesday, Sept. 3, 9 p.m.

Hailing from Ann Arbor, Mich., Wolf Eyes carves out a bottom-heavy groove with bastardized electronics and guitar that often no longer sounds like a guitar, slathering on crackling effects until each song arrives at a cathartic peak. Menacingly engaging. Mr. Beaulieau mixes lock-grooves on four-armed turntables, contact mics and Kurt Schwitters-style intellectual wordplay. With locals LVS opening. 933-5550. $6. --Chris Toenes

Pleasant with Pacific UV and My Dear Ella
Go! Room 4
Wednesday, Sept. 3, 9 p.m.

The crispy pop of Chapel Hill's Pleasant, darting between guitar-based rockers and violin-augmented numbers, is working on a full-length for Durham's Pox World Empire Records, so this is a great chance to catch their new stuff. Pacific UV, from Athens, Ga., makes fine gauzy pop with synth-drones and whispered vocal delivery. Ethereal rockers My Dear Ella fill out the evening. 969-1400. $5. --Chris Toenes

September Fest with Billy Sugarfix, Cardiff Giant, Portastatic and Lud
Orange County Social Club
Sunday, Sept. 7, 4 p.m.

As summer wheezes its last blasts of hot air before giving out completely, Carrboro's OCSC holds its annual patron-appreciation get together. Piled high with old-school local musicians doing their thing out in the back lot, it's the club-equivalent of a casual afternoon neighborhood party. 933-0669. Free, including the pizza! --Chris Toenes
