Thieves, White Lung, Nu Sensae, Loners, Oak City Six 

When: Tue., June 14, 9:30 p.m. 2011

Thieves have had the type of success a talented, promising hardcore band ought to have: Last year, they released an eight-song 7-inch, Positive Vibrations, through To Live A Lie Records and Suburbanite Records. They toured behind it to positive response. It was certainly well beyond what the band had planned or imagined.

"When we started out, it was just, 'Let's play one show,'" member Rodney Finch says. "It was just, 'Hey, we're friends. Let's have fun. And when it's not fun, let's just break up.'"

The success Thieves had shouldn't come as a surprise, though. Positive Vibrations is a worthy document of a powerful punk band with a steady blend of New York hardcore's heaviness, D.C. hardcore's forceful directness and the musicality of N.C. peers Corrosion of Conformity, circa Animosity. It's a succinct and thrilling bombardment; in a Raleigh hardcore scene full of standout bands, Thieves earned its keep.

But the fun didn't last. Tonight, Thieves bid their farewell atop a stacked bill that also features Canadian punks White Lung and Nu Sensae, and Raleigh garage stalwarts The Loners. Thieves, writes drummer Ira Rogers, "literally are going to play hardcore like it's the last thing they'll ever do." —Bryan Reed
