Airstrip, Shockwave Riderz, Heads on Sticks 

When: Fri., June 21, 10 p.m. 2013
Price: $5

Plenty has been said of Airstrip's metal-bred rhythm section and the lumbering heft it adds to the band's dark garage-pop. It's a clear distinction for the band, drawing out the pacing and psych-rock reach. The effect is disorienting, like a bizarro-world Oh Sees who favor depressants to hallucinogens and swelter under Southern humidity. Pittsburgh's Shockwave Riderz cast girl-group dream-pop and retro garage from a mold of clattering synths and skeletal drums, not far removed from Dirty Beaches' Badlands-era rockabilly-scuzz. Openers Heads on Sticks twist dance music pulse through psychedelic corridors, as likely to nudge toward garage-rock hooks as to drop into dub grooves. —Bryan C. Reed

Correction: Shockwaves Riderz are from Pittsburgh (not Philadelphia).
