TONIGHT: Superchunk at the El Rey

Chapel Hill band Superchunk blows into town with an energetic new album

Energetic and upbeat indie pop has made Chapel Hill band Superchunk a staple on any dive bar jukebox. Their just released album I Hate Music is a return to form, blasting ecstatic anthems that are a perfect pairing with PBR and old pals. Big guitars and high-five inducing breakdowns provide a nice dose of rock that will make old timers (read: anyone over the age of 30) long for the days of lounging in record store aisles carefully amassing obscure albums in hopes of impressing the hot slacker helming the cash register.
