MACHETE! Breaking up is hard to do, but breaking a bone will seriously fuck up your band's momentum. The Charlotte duo is set to make its long-awaited return to the stage - this is the band's first live performance since November 2012. Well, that's what happens when your drummer breaks his wrist. One can only imagine the built-up frustrations from eight silent months that are going to be hammered out at this show. The band's droning, sludgy instrumentals pave the way for occasional screamed vocals. This isn't a DJ's version of drum and bass. With Chow Tiger, 2013 Wolves, Greevace. $5-$7. July 6, 9 p.m. The Milestone, 3400 Tuckaseegee Road.
Former U.S. Senator Rick "Frothy" Santorum has long been known for letting his ambition outrun his smarts, but his latest gaffe is so absurd, it could damage his already none-too-rousing presidential campaign.
