Natural Causes, Doom Asylum, Flesh Wounds 

When: Fri., June 26, 9 p.m. 2015
Price: $8


Formed as a snotty, impulsive diversion from its members' other band, Last Year's Men, the Carrboro trio Natural Causes has quickly come into its own. A few months shy of its first anniversary, the band is a fixture on local stages, sharpening its raw punk blasts into anxious, edgy hits. Driven by needling guitar, throbbing synthesizer and sputtering yells, the music references garage-punk peers such as TV Ghost and Ty Segall as much as cult icons The Screamers and The Feederz. At Nightlight, the band celebrates the release of its self-titled debut, a jagged eight-song platter that captures all of its onstage volatility and tension. "Chatter" crumbles from a taut chicken-scratch riff into a trebly bridge; "Hey Grant" gives away the band's garage-pop roots with its melodic guitar riff and gang-hollered hook; and the strung-out synth drone and meandering psych guitar of "Poppers" take the group well beyond its background. It's a remarkable effort that reveals Natural Causes' impulsive origins. With Doom Asylum and Flesh Wounds. 9 p.m., $8, 405 W. Rosemary St., Chapel Hill, 919-960-6101, —Bryan C. Reed
