KINGS—Fresh off a four-day South by Southwest flight, Valient Thorr returns to its native Raleigh—err, Venus—to bid adieu to the capital city's beloved Kings Barcade just one week before its closing. The pairing of the Thorr and Kings has represented all that is right with Raleigh rock 'n' roll for more than half of the club's seven-year tenure, and their last meeting should be an earthmoving triumph only capable in this venue by this band. Also, Black Skies and Kanashibari. The show begins at 10 p.m. Call 831-1005 for more info and cover. —Rich Ivey
