Brain Flannel/Whatever Brains rock out for Recess Fest Benefit tonight (7/30/11)

BRAIN FLANNEL/WHATEVER BRAINS It’s fitting these acts chose grey matter-related monikers since the former (CLT-based) and latter (Raleigh) excel at stimulating both motor control and pleasure centers in the ol’ cerebellum. Brain F plays a self-described “female-fronted overdriven nuclear garage-punk fusion,” wielding distortion like a cudgel and tempos like mainlined speedballs. Think early X or TSOL and you’re in the aggro ’hood. As for the prolific but camera-averse quintet from up the I-85/40 corridor, the WBs blend post-punk into the lo-fi mix, like the Fall channeled through the two-minute cyclones of the late Jay Reatard’s guitar-and-amp rig. Part of Recess Fest Benefit with Pullman Strike, Divide Divide Divide, Monarchist and U.S. Wildlife. $6-$7. The Milestone.
