Nine-Fingered Thug, Lake Isle, Netherfriends 

When: Fri., Aug. 26, 10 p.m. 2011
Price: $5

Raleigh trio Nine-Fingered Thug is something of a one-trick centaur: bass that seems soaked in mud and zapped with electricity, drums that plod and punish, organs that drone and grind, and vocals that seem scraped from the cake of human ash at the bottom of hell, ad infinitum. But that gambit is a good one, as malevolent and belligerent as it is captivating and curious. Think The Fall trying to start more fistfights, or Pere Ubu scoring a film about capital punishment. Netherfriends, on the other hand, are an ebullient Chicago trio with big harmonies and whimsical instrumentation. This bill, which also includes the pop of Lake Isle, is a welcome offering of contrasts. —Grayson Currin
