Local Band Local Beer: Dead Girls: Essex//Muro, Wailin Storms, Roar the Engines 

When: Thu., Dec. 3, 9 p.m. 2015
Price: free




Given the closing of downtown Raleigh staple Tir Na Nog two weeks ago, are you confused about the status of the Irish pub's long-running, free Thursday night rock shows, Local Band Local Beer? Don't be: The series simply moved two doors down, relocating to The Pour House but maintaining the same organizers, sponsors and setup. This week's eclectic and odd four-band bill, for instance, should allay any fears you may have that it's changed. Opening Raleigh quartet Roar the Engines makes throbbing alt-rock that stops somewhere on the dial between the commercial and collegiate stations of the '90s. Headliners Dead Girls, however, drift back to the '80s, with beat machines and hazy textures undergirding hooks that echo the Bunnymen. The highlight, though, should be Durham four-piece Wailin Storms. The band's new LP, One Foot in the Flesh Grave, delivers a thrilling mix of Danzig horror, proto-punk zeal and heavy metal heft. Troy Brian Hancock, of Wool, joins with his new Essex//Muro. 9:30 p.m., free, 224 S. Blount St., Raleigh, 919-821-1120,
