Wool, It Looks Sad, Dead Girls 

When: Fri., Aug. 14, 9 p.m. 2015
Price: $7



Two of Raleigh's most promising young bands up the ante on their recorded output considerably on consecutive days: In the past, the four-piece Wool could droop and drift to the point of seeming unmotivated, as if they were waiting for their hooks to set themselves. But their great new EP, the four-song set Parallels, bursts open with "Neon Age," a distortion-streaked anthem where a backbone of krautrock and a heart of emotional pop-punk collide beneath a blanket of shoegaze warmth. Troy Brian Hancock steps at last into his role as bandleader, delivering a chorus like it has to be heard. WOOL: With It Looks Sad and Dead Girls, 9 p.m., $7, 14 W. Martin St., Raleigh, 919-833-1091, www.kingsbarcade.com. —Grayson Haver Currin
