Walrus, Bury Me at Makeout Creek, Coventry, Rememberwhens 

When: Fri., Jan. 2, 6 p.m. 2009
Price: $8, $6 in advance
After four years together, local quartet Bury Me at Makeout Creek are playing their farewell show. No word yet on where the band will be buried (ahem), but they leave behind a grieving cult following and one seven-track EP, From Far Away Across the World (Mono), that still sounds fresh and full of energy more than two years after its release. As with so much hormonal-young-man rock, it matters less what they’re singing about than that they’re singing at all: even in the worst emo, a Whitmanesque barbaric yawp lurks beneath the surface, and in the good stuff, like this, it’s the dominant note. Tonight’s bill, headliner first, is Walrus, Bury Me at Makeout Creek, Coventry, and the Rememberwhens. —Monica Kendrick
