Smoke Rings, Steel Chains and The Furies


Club 21 Northeast
Fri., Jan. 29, 9 p.m. 2016 21+


Smoke Rings' revved-up sound recalls when punk turned into post-punk, a fluid time when punk's grade-school snot evolved into mature macabre. However, Smoke Rings' needling guitars and inverted d-beat drum playing—to which they're indebted to Drive Like Jehu—would have sounded out of place in post-punk's original explosion. While Noelle Magia's voice centers her other band, the placid psych group Havania Whaal, with Smoke Rings she incants around a trio of instrumentalists, driving them further and further into a frenzy. Smoke Rings share the stage with Steel Chains, who create a similar melee through scratchy guitars played with a deficit of reverb. MAC POGUE
