Harsh Vibe‘s single, “Magic Pentagram”–which, thanks to their win in our Featured Artist(s) Poll, they were able to polish off with free studio time–is everything the band name suggests. It’s nearly four minutes of stoned melodies–of raging psych-noise and abandoned desert songs that burn like midnight beach bonfires and disappearing joints. On “Magic Pentagram,” the local Fishtown five-piece gets loud, and that’s what you should expect tonight at the North Star Bar, where they’ll perform with New York’s fuzzy psych-garage outfit, White Hills (Thrill Jockey), and Cali’s slow-burning strutters Sleepy Sun (ATP). Ripped blue jeans and silkscreened band tees required. North Star Bar, 2639 Poplar St., 8pm, $10, 21+ – Annamarya Scaccia
