Thee Dirtybeats, Old One-Two, Phatlynx 

When: Sat., April 16, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $5-10

Chapel Hill's Thee Dirtybeats are academic, but they still pack enough raucous energy to justify their name. The band's approach is impeccably studied. Drummer Ken Friedman has compiled three volumes of rough gems with the Tobacco-A-Go-Go series, and it shows here. The rhythm and timing points to early hard-edged psychedelic experiments by '60s bands like The Seeds and The Standells. Thee Dirtybeats also possess the power of more modern iterations, booming with lead-heavy bass and aggressive, distorted shredding. It makes for tight, punchy rock best suited for those familiar with garage history. With The Old One-Two and Phatlynx. —Jordan Lawrence
