Panther Ray

9 p.m. • 7th Street Entry • 18-plus • $6

Panther Ray has quietly become a jangly bright spot in the Twin Cities psychedelic continuum. The quartet dropped a pair of solid, if a tad raw, EPs in 2012 and returned this week with their first full-length, celebrated with tonight’s show. Since its previous recordings, Panther Ray brought in drummer Mat Heinrich and guitarist/singer Hannah Porter, both of whom make strong contributions to the Forged Artifacts-issued “Ripple” LP. The new boy-girl vocal dynamic suits their shoegaze-y, garage-charged ditties, with Heinrich’s spunky beats propelling the more up-tempo tracks. With Rupert Angeleyes, Flavor Crystals and Whatever Forever. Michael Rietmulder
