Hammer No More the Fingers, Big Picture 

When: Thu., March 1, 10 p.m. 2012
Price: Free

Though Hammer No More the Fingers hails from Durham, the power trio's primary touchstones initially appear to be Chapel Hill icons such as Superchunk and Polvo. But they often shirk those indie-rock stereotypes to mine '90s alternative influences injected with their own ingenious hook-crafting abilities, eccentric lyrical tendencies and grand arena ambitions. Incisive guitar shredding and incessant shout-along choruses make Hammer one of the best—and most fun—bands to see in the area. Opening is Raleigh collective The Big Picture, led by The Never's Jonny and Joah Tunnel; the band's lushly arranged soundscapes skew its indie-pop pedigree with hefty infusions of hip-hop and electronica. —Spencer Griffith
