Arizona has fomented something of an alternative universe of punk music, with bands like Phoenix's Dogbreth building a catalog of suburban pop-punk and Destruction Unit deconstructing weirdo desert hardcore. Phoenix's Red Tank build off of late-'00s noisy punk, recalling the snottier sides of No Age, Ty Segall, and Harlem (remember freakin' Harlem?). Their tract-home anomie sounds less garage in terms of genre and more in terms of production: Red Tank's scrappy power chords and wails sound composed in an actual garage (and anyone from the Southwest knows "garage bands" are formed out of necessity—basements don't exist there). Funeral Gold, a Portland duo known for their similar scrappy triumph, rounds out the night's charged energy. MAC POGUE
