J Kutchma & the 5 Fifths, Arliss Nancy, Almost People 

When: Tue., Oct. 9, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $5

Leaders of punk rock bands often turn toward stark introspection when they go solo, but Jason Kutchma is the exception. Sharing the heartbeat of Red Collar's workingman's rock 'n' roll, Kutchma still believes in the power of song as a tool for social commentary, though he now envelops his songs in warm, twangy arrangements. That gives his biting lyrics enough heft for support while allowing them room to be heard; the new unit only occasionally resorts to Red Collar's high-volume urgency. The denim-jacket, Southern-style bar rock and graveled, whiskey-soaked vocals of middle act Arliss Nancy make the Colorado quintet quite reminiscent of early Lucero. Durham pop-punk trio Almost People opens. —Spencer Griffith
