Superchunk – Cat’s Cradle – April 15

A warm-up hardly seemed necessary. In a special show to prepare for its appearance at this weekend’s Coachella festival, Chapel Hill stalwarts Superchunk hit the Cat’s Cradle stage with more vim and vigor than a band made up of tested veterans and record label executives has any right to. Singer Mac McCaughan spit spit out his skewering lines of angsty aggression with as much force as he ever has, and his band executed the arrangements with enough power to back him up completely. Durham’s Hammer No More The Fingers was on opening duty, and the band played beautifully. Hitting the stage with a tight, aggressive set, Hammer had the air of polished professionals used to opening for such heavyweights as Superchunk on a regular basis.
