Superchunk, Gross Ghost 

When: Thu., July 12, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $15

One of the best live bands around returns to its local spotlight: Though Superchunk is closing in on a quarter-century of charged hooks and turbocharged performances, you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone making old-band or legacy-act accusations. By giving the band years-long breaks rather than ceremonious hiatuses, they've never forced much, meaning that 2010's Majesty Shredding depended on the same sort of urgency as their early '90s classics. That also goes for "This Summer," their newly minted and seasonally appropriate single; in three minutes, the quartet anchors its hook, rips through a perfect solo and manages to sound much like its more youthful self without trying too hard. They even match it on the flip with a take on Bananarama's "This Summer." Gross Ghost opens. $15/9 p.m. —Grayson Currin
