    Growl (tour kickoff), Blushing, The Nymphs, Dude Elsberry

    Growl cooked up hearty, Weezer-style rock bites on this year’s Won’t You, topped by Santiago Dietche’s honey-smooth vocals. Their first release since 2014, the local presence proves cohesively grown on nine tracks of thoughtful shredding. Hitting the road, they’re seen off by jangly/dreamy noisemakers the Nymphs. Campus-friendly Dude Elsberry sways through mathy numbers after shoegazers Blushing kick off the homegrown evening.

    In The Valley Below, Flagship

    Michigan-born Angela Gail and Tennessee-bred Jeffrey Jacob come together for In the Valley Below, occupying rippled beats, dark and stormy vox, and the moody electro-pop of new EP Elephant, follow-up to acclaimed album The Belt. A soothing, haunting sound remains, but their latest preaches love, persistence, and a more socially conscious agenda. North Carolina duo Flagship open, serving brooding vocals to a steady drum.
