Maple Stave, Ifihadahifi, Zebras 

When: Thu., Aug. 18, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $5

Math rock doesn't often suffer from a lack of energy; its deliberately abrupt nature ensures that. But it's still prone to technical wankery, losing listeners as players lose themselves in their own ability. Maple Stave never has this problem. The Durham trio's potent instrumental rock never loses direction for the sake of ostentatious displays. In fact, as this sort of thing goes, Maple Stave is downright economical. They're powerful, too, dropping superhuman heaviness with a sharpshooter's precision. They'll be complemented by Wisconsin bands IfIHadAHiFi and Zebras, both of whom recall Bear Vs. Shark for their noisy bluntness and whimsical scuzz, respectively. —Bryan C. Reed
