Chapel Hill
Parts & Labor
Local 506—There's an always-enjoyed if often-overlooked pop-punk enthusiasm and magnetism inside Parts & Labor's friction-shot anthems: The unfold-and-withdraw of "Fractured Skies" from last year's Mapmaker sounds like epic, windows-down, open-road music, building stepwise into clangorous, pump-the-fists vocal releases. And "New Buildings," a three-minute energy shock from the band's 2006 album, is noise rock down on the dude ranch, no drummer. New drummer Joe Wong is on the throne for full-time music critic Christopher Weingarten, who used to pummel like a drum machine, just with feeling. Big shoes. Baltimore's Ecstatic Sunshine seems to have expanded beyond its two-amps-in-a-dorm-room shtick, and their forthcoming Way is among the year's most anticipated. Local openers In the Year of the Pig are total system shock drumz 'n' noize. Hear it at 9 p.m. for $8. —Grayson Currin
