Cosmic Punk 

When: Wed., Jan. 11, 7 p.m. 2017
Price: Free

The recent national crackdown on nontraditional art spaces in the wake of Oakland's devastating Ghost Ship fire has been disheartening, to say the least. Many of the pundits who have weighed in on "DIY" have overlooked systemic factors that necessitate alternative venues, like alcohol-related age restrictions and the inability of certain genres and demographics to get booked at traditional clubs. In Durham, Bull City Records is helping to fill that void with its Why Wait series, which features bands performing in the store without a cover charge or age limit. This fourth installment features Chapel Hill's Cosmic Punk. The trio's quiet strain of Southern-tinged guitar pop reflects a calm, vulnerable sensibility, but, as songs like the new "haha I knew this would happen" reveal, Elayna Madden's alluring melodies are often barbed, as bittersweet as they are sticky. Slime opens.—David Ford Smith
