PIPE, Elvis Division, DJ Tuhans 

When: Fri., Dec. 30, 10 p.m. 2016
Price: $8

Pipe didn't get all the props it deserved the first time around. Formed in Chapel Hill in the summer of 1991, the quartet bucked the college-rock conventions of the Triangle at the time. Pipe's brash punk rock bridged hardcore and indie, and the band fit comfortably in both worlds, punk enough to tour with hardcore legends Bad Brains in 1994 but also melodic and accessible enough to tour with indie outfits like Versus and Archers of Loaf. That biformity earned Pipe a home in the nascent Merge Records stable, where they became kissing cousins with the likes of Polvo and Superchunk. Hand injuries suffered by drummer Chuck Garrison and guitarist Clif Mann led to Pipe's dissolution in 1999, but after a ten-year hibernation they reformed with original guitarist Mike Kenlan for Merge's twentieth anniversary celebration. The band's second wind is as strong as its first; Pipe still packs an immediate punch, swiveling and buckling with maniacal intensity. Old punks never die—and, in Pipe's case, they don't fade away, either. Elvis Division and DJ Tuhans open. —Patrick Wall
