Native

8 p.m. Wednesday, August 12. Lemp Neighborhood Arts Center, 3301 Lemp Avenue.

There's something about the age-to-talent ratio that makes the post-punk of the barely legal Indiana quartet Native both impressive and genuine. Perhaps it's the group's intelligent guitar work, which recalls the geometric riffs of Jawbox and Faraquet — two bands that are decidedly unhip to the eighteen-to-twenty-year-old demographic to which the members of Native belong. Or maybe it's the fact that vocalist Ed O'Neil's yelps sound more like a pissed Ian MacKaye than a Warped Tour screamo outfit. But Native's debut EP, We Delete; Erase, is more than just a release full of potential: It's the sound of a newly hatched rock band taking its first flight and landing firmly on its feet.
