Arizona psych-punk outfit Destruction Unit plays a style of music very much in line with its imposing name: unforgiving, razor-edged and bent on causing chaos wherever it goes. The group swings through the Classic City to play an Athens Intensified-sponsored show that also features some notable locals. The other three bands on Wednesday’s bill are likewise known for their guitar worship, whether their playing is primal and pummeling (Pinecones, Vincas) or sleek and virtuosic (Double Ferrari). There’s also a shared love of deep death-bass grooves and pummeling drum rhythms. This is the show of the week. In a cool turn, it’s also all-ages.
9 p.m. $8 (21+), $10 (under 21). caledonialounge.com
