Gray Young, Knives & Daggers, Unholy Tongues 

When: Sat., Aug. 6, 10 p.m. 2011
Price: $5

Gray Young exercises restraint in its approach to songwriting, though the large-scale sounds the band draws from tend to offer a different impression. The Raleigh trio's attention to British post-punk, arena rock and cinematic post-rock pays off in the form of gently swelling anthems that fill whatever space they're allowed. Even as the band has added more vocals to the songs, they've never lost sight of the textured instrumental arrangements that goad their best work. Asheville's Knives and Daggers bring pensive pacing and clean, strings-led swells; Wilmington's Unholy Tongues offer their own occasionally heavy, insistent brand of instrumental post-rock. —Bryan C. Reed
