Spider Bags, Flesh Wounds, DJ Suggadelic 

When: Thu., Feb. 28, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $5

Here's a living, kicking and screaming study of what it can mean when folks say "garage rock": With two guitars, a drum kit and give-it-all-you-got vocals, Flesh Wounds sear through songs that are, at the core, ebullient R&B. They add grunge-lifted grit and a little country sadness, though it's all in direct service of that central mission. But the great Spider Bags turn their garage rock into a vision quest, finding new ways to express parties and hangovers, puppy love and adult heartbreak. They shamble in country weeds, sojourn in South-of-the-Border exotica, swivel through instrumental jams and return again and again to relentless and rollicking rock 'n' roll that's better for the trip it's endured. —Grayson Currin
