Barren Girls, Yardwork, Zack Mexico 

When: Sat., Feb. 9, 9:30 p.m. 2013
Price: $5

Merge Records wasn't always the Grammy-winning label with claims to The Arcade Fire, Spoon and Neutral Milk Hotel; no, in its salad days, the Chapel Hill-born imprint often issued the music of its friends, such as Finger, Erectus Monotone, Polvo and the flagship, Superchunk. In April, they'll resemble that label of old with the release of Hell Hymns, a four-song, 10-minute EP by four-women, Raleigh-and-Richmond act Barren Girls. Like a middle finger-shaped box of Nuggets, the quartet's debut is giddily psychedelic and decidedly antagonistic. They're joined by Yardwork, a Charlotte band whose members funnel résumés of math-rock, hardcore, world music and free jazz into wild-eyed and contagious permutations of shout-along pop. Zack Mexico opens with outlandish garage revamps imported from the Carolina shore. —Grayson Currin
