Combine Raising Your Pulse at KFN March 13

Though you just lost an hour from your weekend, you can still make the most of it by coming out tonight to Kung Fu Necktie. Genre-splicing art-punks Combine provide unrelenting, spastic yet calculated drum bursts that grab hold of you, while guitars slash and stab in an unforgiving nature. The result are tunes that have a ominous presence, raising your pulse with each measure. Laying the groundwork for the evening, Combine will also be joined by shoegaze-y alt rockers Blacksalt, slow-burning LA psych-rock duo Jerkagram, and headliners Throbbing Chakra, which features Lantern's Zachary Fairbrother. All is not lost yet. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 Front St., 8pm, $6, 21+ (Photo by Diego Muya) - H.M. Kauffman

Throbbing Chakra Opening for Nobunny at JB's Nov. 15

An exploratory headspace united with a raging post-punk assertion that doesn’t fit neatly into a genre pocket (but what really does?), the trio of Throbbing Chakra, featuring Lantern's Zachary Fairbrother, traverses uncertain territory. However, as they work across the grounds, a magnetizing sound emerges. One illuminated with a creepy yet intriguing glow that you’ll follow into spaces unseen. Tonight, the space is Johnny Brenda’s, where they'll be kicking things off, alongside Amanda X, whose three-pronged attack combines a heavy rhythm push, guitar work that slithers and screams, and vocals that melodically glide over top. The unfettered blitz of Baltimore’s Sick Thoughts will also help to build a path to the zany garage-pop of Nobunny. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 8pm, $14, 21+ - Michael Colavita
