North Carolina’s Durham and Chapel Hill region are becoming quite the hotbed for quality indie-rock outfits unafraid of tight, guitar-driven tunes. Following the lead of recent area stalwart Stuart McLamb and his band the Love Language comes Hammer No More the Fingers. Displaying the kind of garage-rock choruses and melodic chops that Weezer wishes it still could pull off, this power-pop trio from the Triangle delivers the goods when it comes to hook-laden ’90s college rock. Touring behind “Black Shark,” the follow-up to their full-length debut, “Looking for Bruce,” Hammer No More the Fingers are scheduled to perform at Strange Matter on Wednesday, July 20, at 9 p.m. $5. 447-4763.
