Manray at Tremont Music Hall tonight (6/28/2012)

MANRAY On first glance, Athens, Ga.'s Manray may seem like just another group of angry young guys in black t-shirts playing heavy music. But there's more to this five-piece than ink-saturated skin, snarling vocals and a requisite shirtless drummer. Referred to by one local music writer as "complicated-core," Manray play experimental hardcore melodic enough to draw in folks who don't usually listen to music that requires earplugs. Named after the envelope-pushing, avant-garde photographer of the early 1900s, Manray blurs the lines between punk, hardcore and math-rock. The resulting literate, face-melting tunes give Manray a broad appeal that has earned the band the status of one of the most respected acts in its music-minded hometown. With Junior Astronomers, Lazer/Wulf, and The Air Station. $7-$10. 9 p.m. Tremont Music Hall.
