Phobia, Sons of Tonatiuh, Stripmines, Squall 

When: Sun., Sept. 26, 9 p.m. 2010
Price: $8

I've heard of people listening to grindcore to go to sleep. The ultrafast tempos, they say, tend to blur songs together into some kind of white noise. Those people aren't listening to the right grindcore. California foursome Phobia's punk-rooted grind edges above the pack with decipherable riffs, a vocalist with more than one setting and even momentary guitar leads. Their soon-to-be-released EP, Unrelenting (how's that for truth in advertising?), might clear 17 songs in about 14 minutes, but each second counts. Phobia's eyeblink songs will be some contrast to the openers: Atlanta's Sons of Tonatiuh and Raleigh's Squall, both of whom offer thick, heavy mid-tempo slogs, and Raleigh hardcore band Stripmines, whose rage smolders before it explodes. $8/ 9 p.m. —Bryan Reed
