The Demon Beat, The Mercators, Blanko Basnet 

When: Sat., Oct. 13, 9:30 p.m. 2012
Price: $5

The Demon Beat may be a West Virginia band, but the prolific power trio plays this Raleigh date as a release show for its new LP Less is Less. They don't test their chosen form's boundaries often, but this is not rock by the numbers. Rather, the band's inward stylistic focus results in a punchy, R&B-reminiscent rhythm section over which guitarist and hollerer Adam Meisterhans bashes all the hell from his overdriven instrument. Look to Demon Beat buddy band Hammer No More the Fingers for a comparable local: It's not much more than rock 'n' roll, and what's wrong with that? Appropriately, Hammer guitarist Joe Hall's new solo identity, Blanko Basnet, opens, followed by The Mercators. —Corbie Hill
