Spark City

Given the headliner, they could subtitle this sleeper-hit show My Bloody Stoner Easter. Vancouver BC trio Weed’s new Running Back comes out this Tuesday, April 7 on Lefse Records; tonight’s a pregame preview of their soft-shoe postpunk churn-rock with its touch of ‘90s GBV/Swirlies and diffident, world-drifting-into-entropy vocals, maybe sung by the quiet guy on the JV track squad? Boston’s heretical Funeral Cone break something zippy, agile, multilayered, and fun out of the often Puritanical confines of Northeast HC–derived music. Maybe it’s that organ, which is hardly what Cotton Mather had in mind for Sunday worship . . . Providence’s Mother Tongue pull off a sort of “Sweet Leaf” played thickly backwards with zombified, LA-punk-style, let’s-get-sushi-and-not-pay vox. Awesome! Fellow locals Wokling are doing good work with two-and-a-half chords on the 13-bar-blues: Yowling, energetic, genuinely agitated about something, with some nice fresh-poured-cement grain on that guitar. —Mohan Lal
