Helta Skelta, Davidians 

When: Tue., Jan. 19, 9:30 p.m. 2016
Price: $7
Helta Skelta, of Perth, Australia, opened last year’s Burning the Black Stump by riffing on the Dead Kennedys’ “Holiday in Cambodia” intro. Adding an undercurrent of clanging post-punk guitar and pushing the pace, Helta Skelta darkened the edges of an already dark tune. It’s a surprisingly blatant homage for a band that otherwise meshes its influences—Wire’s winding post-punk, the Buzzcocks’ big hooks, Thee Oh Sees’ psych-garage throb—into an innovative blend. Raleigh’s Davidians, who generate their own vital mix of post-punk jags and hardcore force, share the bill. —Bryan C. Reed
