Ego Death Machine, The Cult of Chunk, Moderneverything, Jackson Fig
February 6 | 8:00 pm$10
With their Bandcamp page devoted to an absurdist deconstruction of an answering machine message, NYC’s Cult of Chunk promise artsy weirdness in the vein of giant eyeball-sporting goofball terrorists The Residents. Charlotte’s stripped-down proto grunge trio Jackson Fig summons the elemental force of an earlier era, when indie was forming and not yet classified. Two more Charlotte outfits — post-rock noise trio Ego Death Machine and spiky new wave-accented rockers Moderneverything — fill the bill.
