Loincloth, Bandages, Enemy Waves 

When: Sat., Aug. 9, 9:30 p.m. 2014

"We would love to push this," explains Tomas Phillips, one-fourth of instro-metal band Loincloth, "but we're a very slow band." Really? Loincloth's music is a pinball of high-grade agility and precision, where piercing riffs and pounding rhythms move in remarkable patterns at laser speed. But Phillips is talking about the pace at which the band writes, not plays. Despite being a band since 2000, Loincloth released their bracing debut only in 2012. Writing new material since has been a struggle not only because half of the band lives in Richmond and half in Raleigh, but also because guitarist Tannon Penland broke his fretting hand in several places last year during a car crash. "He's still dealing with residual problems, but playing guitar was part of his therapy," Phillips says. Now, Loincloth has new material that they hope to build into a second album as early as next year. Alacrity, turns out, demands patience. Bandages and Enemy Waves open. —Grayson Haver Currin
