Harvey Milk – Local 506 – Feb. 27

Some things in this world really are worth the wait. The return of Athens, Ga.’s Harvey Milk to a Chapel Hill stage was one of them. Weaving guitar, and drums into walls of imposing, rattling and mind-encompassing sludge, the trio turned boozy blues riffs into devastating walls of depression. Singer Creston Spiers proved that his anguished, roaring groan hasn’t lost any of its impact over the years, as he delivered tortured vocals that would have seemed just at home coming out of the damned in Hell. It was an impressive display to say the least. Fellow out-of-towners Pontak also delivered a great performance, with a heavy blues-infused style that meshed well with Harvey Milk. Chapel Hill’s Black Skies was the only slight disappointment, delivering a set that lacked some of the group’s usual vigor. But Pontiak and Harvey more than made up the difference in what was one hell of a heavy night.
