Over the last decade, many bands have drawn inspiration from early-’80s British post punk. London’s Savages are yet more disciples of this dark, stark strain of rock that bristled and grimaced during Margaret Thatcher’s reviled reign. On their debut album, Silence Yourself, vocalist Jehnny Beth sings with a deep, dramatic vibrato that triggers thoughts of Siouxsie Sioux, while the guitars and bass scathe with a sooty power. Savages’ four women conjure a corn-free malevolence missing from much modern indie rock. (Neumos, 925 E Pike St, neumos.com, 8 pm, $15 adv, 21+)
