When it comes to summer in the South, you’ve gotta embrace the heat. Accept that daily full-body sweat as a fact of life. On weekend nights, go ahead and crowd into those tiny clubs and flail around to the rock music, because #YOLO, dammit, and also because, in this instance, the music is really good. If you haven’t caught Athens power-punk trio Harsh Words in a while, it’s high time to remind yourself of the truth in their pummeling hardcore. Likewise for Karbomb, the local punks who recently celebrated their 10th anniversary. Florida pop-punk outfit Edmonton and Atlanta scuzz-rockers Spray Tan round out the bill.
