Local post-hardcore faves Quicksand summed up everything positive about so-called alternative rock with their near-perfect 1993 LP Slip, a record that brilliantly combined underground edginess with major-label sheen. That the band's two local shows last summer—as well as the Jan 30 gig—sold out pretty much instantaneously should tell you something about how well Slip and its ’95 follow-up, Manic Compression, have aged.
