Twilighter, Southern Femisphere, Boring Portals 

When: Sat., Nov. 17, 10 p.m. 2012
Price: $5

Charleston, S.C.'s Southern Femisphere was born out of a Weezer tribute performance a year ago. But these days, the quartet sounds instead like Pixies followers big on punk-charged rock, alternately sweet and mildly aggressive with abundant harmonies. Local quintet Twilighter—whose name perfectly fits its late-night quirks but, in the path of Twilight's teenage vampires, aren't the most easily found band on the Internet—shares that Pixies feel on eclectic indie rock that borrows elements of twang and post-punk to become thoroughly unpredictable. SoFem's fellow Chucktown act Boring Portals blasts its garage-punk into noisy shards, only to pick up the pieces with raw, retro-minded power pop. —Spencer Griffith
