What's better than seeing a great local band for free? Try seeing four great local bands for free. We've said plenty of nice things about the explosive Archers in the past, so hopefully you know about their spectacular 7-inch and forthcoming full-length. And Sons of Huns are cataclysmically good, an explosive collision of metal, punk, and psychedelic rock that hits like a landslide—and not the Fleetwood Mac kind. But the band you might be most excited about is Support Force, a trio who build pop songs out of surprising pieces, changing direction mid-song and stacking different parts together into precarious patterns. Their balance of catchiness and experimentalism results in vividly listenable music that's full of surprises. Support Force has a 7-inch due in the summer; in the meantime, expect to be hearing their name plenty. NED LANNAMANN
