Mineral Girls, Emperor X, Sinai Vessel, Ernie

When: Fri., May 19, 9 p.m. 2017

When Charlotte’s Mineral Girls put out their first couple of Bandcamp releases, they had the drums, the guitars, the fuzz, the self-doubt and the self-pity — they had everything but the girl. That changed on Cozy Body, in 2015, when Audry Ayers joined on guitar. They still have all that other stuff, but it sounds a lot better now. Just listen to “Skeleton Dad” and try keep yourself from dancing like Steve Martin in The Jerk. You can’t do it. Maybe it’s cuz they got the girl.

Price: $5-7.
