Ángel Loor, led by and named for local high schooler Miguel Loor, were young and fun and full of promise.

The Tines, veterans who’ve seen plenty, were cool and collected, the eye of the storm.

Killer Kin, the night’s closers, were the storm—mainly the frontman, Matt Lea, who gnashed, thrashed, prowled, howled, raining sweat and, from a finger, a little blood.

My late-30s ears wanted plugs and preferably no blood on my clothes. But they couldn’t deny it was pretty rock ’n’ roll.
