Pullman Strike, The Sammies, Motel Glory 

When: Fri., Jan. 4 2013
Price: $7
PULLMAN STRIKE, THE SAMMIES, MOTEL GLORY You’ll mosh. You’ll cry. You may even try on a pair of Carhartts, as there’s as much mournful rural twang as urban grit and gristle to Charlotte country-rockers Pullman Strike. The band’s strongest qualities — galloping Northeastern punk energy and plaintive storytelling — balance against each other nicely, resulting in an engaging, down-to-earth crossover approach. The Sammies, on the other hand, offer an energized, indie-rock hybrid that looks less to the dive or the backwoods, and more to the arena: the songs of this Charlotte band are massive, infectious stompers. And Rock Hill’s Motel Glory leads an occasionally jittery, sugar-high charge straight into the country-punk camp. Yet all three bands know how to slow down and spin a sad musical tale of loss and regret — gotta respect that.
