Center of the Sun at the Milestone tonight (11/3/2012)

Fairly new Charlotte five-piece Center of the Sun may feature members of aggressive heavyweights Young and in the Way and Grids, but this project inhabits an ’80s-tinged mood-rock character instead. Sure, you can tell there’s metal in someone’s bloodstream: drums hit hard, while guitars summon dense, threatening storm clouds of crunch and fuzz. Yet Ally Hoffman’s clarion vocals ride these churning shoewave textures with excellent poise. It may be her lonesome, powerful melodies, and it may be the careful, focused songwriting, but something keeps this exciting band thankfully grounded — countless times, these same elements have led to pure space-rock. And that’s fine in its place, but that’s not Center of the Sun. With Scowl Brow, One Another and Late Bloomer. $5-$7. Nov. 3, 9 p.m. Milestone, 3400 Tuckaseegee Road. 704-398-0472.
