Le Weekend, S. E. Ward, Al Riggs
Pour House, Raleigh
A phenomenal night of strange yet pleasing local indie-rock / pop / folk / whatever. Le Weekend are releasing a great new album, and I believe al riggs will be accompanied by his sometime band, The Big Sad.

Johnny Irion, Tim Bluhm
Motorco Music Hall, Durham
The sign says "Johnny Irion of U.S. Elevator" but around here it might be more effective to say "Johnny Irion of Queen Sarah Saturday" or "Johnny Irion of BLUESHAMMER."

Museum Mouth, Mannequin Pussy, Spirit of the Beehive, Soccer Tees
Neptunes, Raleigh
Philadelphia's Mannequin Pussy put out my favorite album of 4Q16 (so far, at least). 11 songs, 18 minutes, but it's not a hardcore album -- it's more like a distillation of all the best parts of Hole, Dinosaur Jr & Sonic Youth (in their poppier moments).
