Of these four local bands sharing a bill, three specialize in noise abrasion: Denim Matriarch’s clanging progressive metal, Vial’s frantic pop-punk, and Pure Shifter’s fizzy electronic snarl should clear the sinuses and satisfy the aggressive impulses. Flip Rushmore’s straight-ahead, folk-tinged rock is warmer, goofier, and twangier—the meat and potatoes of the bunch.
