Cusses, Whatever Brains, PC Worship, Octopus Jones 

When: Wed., Feb. 20, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $7

Want to witness two ways young rock groups translate career success differently in 2013? Show up early, then, for New York's PC Worship and Raleigh's Whatever Brains, two incredibly prolific, compelling and strange bands that skewer undeniable, brain-candy melodies with broken drum loops, assailant sheets of noise and lunging dynamic sensibilities. And in an era when online image can mean quite a bit for a young act, both PC Worship and Whatever Brains use their web presences as mere depots for the strangling beauties they make. But Savannah trio Cusses, led by commanding singer Angel Bond, turn the underground tenacity of the openers into a marketing pitch, streamlining it for bulk presentation. And after releasing only one album, the band's website suggests a major-label portal, with boasts of MTV-endorsed videos and newsletter invitations. Come early and, perhaps after being befuddled by the scrambled rock of the openers, leave early, too. —Grayson Currin
