Raleigh's Natural Science headlines this night of dingy rock , but it's the second band on the bill that deserves your attention. Pinche Gringo is the one-man act of Greensboro's Josh Johnson, but his primitive blues-rock bests that of most full bands. With his amps stacked on steamer cases behind him, he slashes through jagged riffs that strain out all but the most aggressive bits. He yells into a drum mic that distorts his voice into a rabid bark, and the sound is intoxicating and raw. Natural Science offers a suitable cool down, as its classic-leaning indie rock lounges about on smooth licks and patient bass lines. Adam Thorn opens. —Jordan Lawrence
