Rocket Cottage, The Infamous Sugar, Torpor 

When: Fri., April 23, 10 p.m. 2010
Price: $3

The odd sonic contortions of Raleigh's Rocket Cottage suggest a double-jointed dwarf squeezing through the eye of a needle. Skronky mid-tempo squeals unload over Russ DeSena's wail, which deeply recalls the Minutemen's D. Boon. Indeed, the writhing aesthetic of early SST records seems embedded in their DNA. Opening duo Torpor stir up a musical maelstrom as thick and obdurate as a tornado of volcanic ash; within minutes of listening, an impulse arises to shake out your clothes. Thanks to his unrelenting sexual come-ons, opener the Infamous Sugar might actually instigate a whole-body scouring, were it not for the infectious insistence of his garage-soul grooves. —Chris Parker
