ATL Concert Roundup — April 22-28

Metz

THIS WEEK’S BEST BET:

Metz
w/ Odonis Odonis, The Liverhearts, Hawks
Monday, April 22
529 – 529 Flat Shoals Avenue in Atlanta 30316
Admission $10 / Purchase Tickets

Canadian noise-punk trio Metz attack with bulldozing ferocity. Their self-titled sledgehammer of a debut, released last year via Sub Pop, is loud, punishing, depraved, and also remarkably efficient. Songs come and go in two to three minutes—a chaotic whirlwind of abrasive guitars, lurching rhythms and righteous anger. But buried beneath the head-splitting blasts of confrontational noise are some ecstatic hooks that manage to stick around and make their presence felt. If you only have time for one show this week, Metz’s whiplash-inducing aural frenzy simply can’t be missed.
