Vaz, Black Skies, Pygmy Shrews 

When: Mon., Sept. 5, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $6

AmRep being short for the stalwart '90s indie label Amphetamine Reptile, home of teeth-kicking folks such as Helmet, the Melvins and the semi-forgotten Hammerhead. When Hammerhead broke up in 1996, two of its members formed Vaz, and they spent the first decade of the 21st century making some of the best (and strangest) two-man kickass tunes that very few people had a chance to hear. They're now a three-piece, and the first Vaz album in six years, Chartreuse Bull, finds them cutting out the funny digressions in lieu of hitting listeners over the head in a most agreeable fashion. With Black Skies and Pygmy Shrews. —David Raposa
