Nine Fingered Thug, Rocket Cottage 

When: Thu., Aug. 25, 9:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $3

Tonight joins two relatively new Raleigh bands, each with its own 7-inch platter of seething scuzz. Nine Fingered Thug's Bitter Ballads single makes an unholy racket of its drums/ keys/ bass setup. Its aptly titled A-side, "Grinding Against Bone," finds Singer Samuel M.Z. Mintu growling like Gargamel gargling Clorox over dissonant organ drones and a staggering, bottom-heavy rhythm section. Rocket Cottage's four-song platter, Go For It!, is equally abrasive, but betrays its rock 'n' roll roots as it pigfucks its way through Raw Power garage grooves and enough "Low Rider" cowbell clomps to appease Christopher Walken. —Bryan C. Reed
