Zozobra, Kowloon Walled City, Solar Halos 

When: Mon., April 8, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $8-10

Nominally, Brutal Panda Records is a heavy metal label, a tag legitimized by a roster that includes Horseback, The Atlas Moth and Ramming Speed. But the Philadelphia imprint seems more interested in breaking the typical boundaries of the style than reinforcing them. Zozobra, for instance, surrounds the churn of hardcore with emo directness and death metal animosity, then shrouds it all with foreboding atmospheric murk. As for ominous environments, that's the specialty of brazen San Francisco four-piece Kowloon Walled City. On last year's Container Ships, they paired the shifting structures and spittle-flecked braggadocio of Shellac and Silkworm with moments of punk fury, stoner drone and post-rock climax. These strange touring chimeras should pair nicely with Carrboro's Solar Halos, a trio that browbeats with low end and charms with distended riffs. —Grayson Currin
