Goner, Wichita Falls 

When: Thu., Aug. 22, 10 p.m. 2013
Price: Free
Chris Tamplin has booked Tir na nOg's Local Band, Local Beer series for six years, with a short break spent helping to start Motorco. His run ends next week. For Tamplin's penultimate gig, the guitar-less trio Goner delivers the sophisticated pop it's culled for more than a decade from influences as far-flung as Springsteen, Fugazi and Celtic Frost. Faking the Wisdom, their latest, is inaptly titled, as its treatment of hooks, dynamics and delivery plays out as mature in the best possible sense. Wichita Falls, on the other hand, is the outpost of Will Clinton, an upstart bandleader whose approach to rock is uncomplicated and emphatic. His five-song EP, ...and the Bad Blood, suggests a teenager howling his list of worldly worries into a four-track recorder, his seemingly innate sense of hooks shaped and scatted by his grievances. &mdash Grayson Currin
