CEREMONY This is so Charlotte - weeks with little out-of-town music to get excited about, and then two quality punk shows on the same night ... thank you, Jesus. Anyway, the hardcore kids dispute whether Ceremony fits that genre at all, and a 30-second-spin of this California band's recent songs - especially those off its latest, this year's Zoo - tells you the band has turned for inspiration toward Wire, the Pistols and the Buzzcocks and (way) away from Black Flag or Ceremony's own Bay area progenitors, the Dead Kennedys. It's still fast if somewhat less furious, and that melody thing has definitely become more important, so your mileage will vary depending on your punk proclivities. With Screaming Females and Joint D≠. $10. Haunted Mill.
