Caltrop, Pontiak, Arbouretum 

When: Sat., May 15, 10 p.m. 2010
Price: $7

Pontiak is a wooly rock 'n' roll power trio of brothers—Van, Jennings and Lain Carney—from the edge of the mountains just west of Washington, D.C. They play blues-based rock with thick bass, craggy guitar and relentless drums, but they play it a bit unlike most bands you've ever heard. Full of big rests and audacious bait-and-switch maneuvers, their sprawling man-rock thrives on the unexpected. Longtime friends and Thrill Jockey labelmates Arbouretum open. At his best, frontman Dave Heumann is a thrilling guitar player, pushing guitar solos to the brink of chaos but pulling them in just in time to maintain the song's motion. Local monsters Caltrop headline. —Grayson Currin
