MATTHEW SINGER
9 pm, Sunday August 17 | $3 with RSVP, $12 day of show.
Star Theater
13 NW 6th Ave.
 

[POWER-PUNK] Superchunk is never going to surprise you, and that's among its better qualities. Over 23 years, the North Carolina stalwarts have squeezed a lot of life from just a few energetic power chords, strained-larynx hooks and a lot of punkish soul. Tenth album I Hate Music is every bit as vital as Superchunk's 1990 debut, except frontman Mac McCaughan now uses his aggro-elfin whinny to ruminate on death, aging and the joys of staying at home. The band headlined the Crystal Ballroom last year, which was maybe too big for it. This venue feels just right.
