Pop 1280, Old Bricks 

When: Thu., June 7, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $8

Spend an evening pondering the freaky underbelly of America: Pop. 1280, named after noir nihilist Jim Thompson's novel, employs Jesus Lizard guitar scrapes and Swans riffage to grind out tales of Lynch-like, small-town living. On City Lights, the latest from Carrboro's Old Bricks, the song titles are terse, almost perfunctory ("Appetite," "Shepherd"), suggestive of a hard-assed poet's vision of the South. If the idyllic regularity of a Norman Rockwell and goofy roadside attractions like that Muffler Man outside Raleigh scan as "Americana," then surely that term includes some lost-highway post-punk and expansive, home-recorded, back-alley folk, too. —Brandon Soderberg
