Hard hitting garage rock duo The Loners play a hometown show at Raleigh’s Tir Na Nog tonight. The band’s tough, chugging riffs and tenacious rhythms will be paired with the retro pop of the Huguenots. It’s a free show, part of the Local Beer, Local Band series, and, as always, there will be great specials on the local brews the bar has on tap.
Free Electric State bare their arena-sized shoegaze riffs in support of a band with sound that’s actually as large as their own. The band opens up for A Place To Bury Strangers at Motorco Music Hall. The $12 show gets going at 9:30 p.m. Hooray For Earth plays in the middle of this three-band bill.
