Rising from the ashes of the jam-driven Redbelly Band, Athens quintet DEAD CONFEDERATE graduated to a shadowy keen, suffused of arid drone. The sultry thrum spikes in noisy spasms of roar, then recedes into a sturdy pulse colored in shimmering swaths of distortion and reverb. The insistent narcotized sound insinuates itself slyly, like a well-lit barroom lothario. All the Saints, who opens the Thurs., DEC. 27 show, plays chunky garage psych that lingers like stoned window-shoppers as the bubbling rumble slowly accumulates like storm clouds haunted by the incipient spectre of release. $7. 9 p.m. Lenny's Bar, 486 Decatur St. 404-577-7721. www.lennysbar.com.
