Zack Mexico (CD release), Lonnie Walker, The Critters 

When: Thu., Oct. 17, 9:30 p.m. 2013
Price: $6
Two years ago, Zack Mexico emerged from the coastal dune burg of Kill Devil Hills with what seemed like backlit beach music played by kids reared on indie rock—that is, light and lithe jams anchored by a sand-veiled core of suspicion. Their excellent debut LP, Ephemera of Altruisms, doesn't go quite glum. It is, however, more aggressive and less forgiving, with guitars that turn from shrieks into streaks and drums that hammer the slightly aloof hooks back to earth. During the tempestuous "All My Friends Love Rock 'N' Roll," they test the loyalty of those pals, bruising the cooed vocals with a rhythm section that's out for a fistfight and guitars that scrape and crawl—like sunburnt kids with well-worn copies of Sonic Youth's Dirty, doing their best to make the luau weird. —Grayson Currin
