Big happenings this week at Churchkey. Friday, Hammer No More The Fingers unveil their sophomore full-length Black Shark with a release party at Durham’s Motorco Music Hall. The trio explodes in well-controlled bursts of tenacious energy with muscular bass lines and riffs that prickle with amazing texture. They’ll be joined at the show by rambunctious and entertaining indie folk band Midtown Dickens and hip-hop/rock act LiLa. The $10 show gets started at 9 p.m. with Midtown Dickens. Come on out and grab your copy of the new album and take part in all the fun!
Also on tap from Churchkey this week — Last Year’s Men play shows in New York and Ohio. Tonight they hit the Bug Jar in Rochester, and then they head to Now That’s Class in Cleveland for a Friday night performance.
