Royal Chant 

When: Wed., Oct. 3, 10 p.m. 2012
Price: Free

While garage-rock's constituent elements come from all over—there's a little British Invasion reverted to bluesiness again, and plenty of doo-wop-descended punk—it's safe to say that the garages it formed in mostly weren't in Australia. But New South Wales' prolific Royal Chant offers a fresh, international treatment of this American rock style. It's not traditional garage, as many songs expand well past the two-minute mark. What's more, Royal Chant celebrates the infectious pomp, sneer and fuzz of mid-'90s grunge. But there's a trebly, raucous, elemental quality, too—reflecting the MC5 and its raw-boned inheritors, Detroit-born and beyond. The Hissy Fits open. —Corbie Hill
