I don't have enough fingers to count the number of great punk- and '90s-guitar-rock-influenced bands pouring out of Olympia right now. Refreshingly, each band has its own unique take on this style, and there are few phoned-in throwbacks to be heard. Like many of their peers, Naomi Punk have managed to place themselves on the national radar. Brooklyn label Captured Tracks reissued the group's second album, The Feeling, last year. The explosions of guitar and crashing, rhythmic drumbeats on songs like "Burned Body" will drill their way into your head after a listen or two. That album is now a couple of years old, and the band has been working to evolve their sound drastically. Tonight's appearance is the perfect place for them to show just how far they've come.
