Wednesday night rock: Royal Bangs, R. Ring and more

A glut of fine musical entertainment is available on this particular hump day. For your consideration:

Yelp-minded indie rockers Royal Bangs, who we like a lot around here, will play Double Happiness, 482 S. Front St. 9 p.m. doors.

I already explained what's good about Kelley Deal's new project R. Ring, who'll play The Tree Bar, 887 Chambers Rd., tonight at 9. Opening act Feature Films is also super dope, and I suspect Joel Walter/Keith Novicki combo will be suitably gritty.

William Beckett, erstwhile frontman for emo staples The Academy Is..., will play Rumba Cafe, 2507 Summit St. 7 p.m. doors on this one. Opener is Cara Salimando.

And don't forget that killer local folk-rock showcase at Kobo including Dolfish, Time & Temperature, Saintseneca and Old Hundred's Blake Skidmore.
