Guitars treads somewhere between early Sonic Youth and Sleater-Kinney. A strong female singer (occasionally accompanied by distorted male vocals) is backed by guitars that are plucked, distorted and/or droned out. Its all carried along by a steady bass line and simple drums that will have listeners rockin back and forth instead of rockin out. (And we mean that in a good way.) The local, three-guy-two-gal fivesome consists of members from Alarma!, The Monocles and Lenny Briscoe. This incarnation, however, isnt akin to any of these, so fans should be ready to hear a different sound when Guitars tunes up between fellow rockers Lazy Horse and The Born Liars. 9 p.m. Rudyards, 2010 Waugh Drive.
