Desert-dwellers Destruction Unit to run riot at Barboza | Concert preview

Destruction Unit

Does Destruction Unit hail from Arizona? Yes.

Do they bring the heat? Most definitely.

Thursday at Barboza, the psych-punk quintet shows off its triple-guitar attack, supporting “Deep Trip” — an eight-song whirlwind of blown-out noise, garage-rock bluster and unhinged hardcore ferocity. (Check out lead track “The World on Drugs” here.)

Opening the show are locals Dreamdecay, whose latest, “N V N V N V” (listen), occupies similar sonic ground, yet is slower and more methodical — though no less destructive — in its approach.

Followers of the new-school punk underground can testify to both bands’ on-the-rise statuses, and the dimly-lit environs of the subterranean, Neumos-adjacent club are a perfect fit for music that drags listeners under with such relentlessness.

Destruction Unit, Dreamdecay, Lindseys
8 p.m. Thursday at Barboza, 925 E. Pike St., Seattle; $10 (206-709-9467 or www.thebarboza.com/).
