Friday, March 30NAILBITER

with Recreant, Abuse, Centuries

Every hardcore punk show should include at least one thoroughly capitalized compound band name. How else can one discern between yet another Screeching Weasel fan-club meeting and a concert they’ll actually remember just by glancing over a flier? Ryan Pemberton, O-town native and founder of 90 Proof Productions, understands the need to preserve the unmistakable atmosphere of a live punk-rock experience in the city. This show features a headlining performance from South Carolina’s Nailbiter, a permanently pissed power-violence trio erupting with ardent inertia. Tonight’s venue, Sip, provides a swanky, well-furnished aesthetic rather than the routine beer-coated tile skating rink. Joining the keratin-crunching punks are local attention-deficient grindcore aficionados Abuse and the equally hard-bitten Centuries and Recreant, rounding out the West Palm-Tampalando billing with congenial crusty chaos. – Jared Oates Haggard
