Blag'ard, Transportation, Where the Buffalo Roamed 

When: Thu., June 30, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $5

Blag'ard and Transportation couldn't approach rock from angles any more divergent. The former, a Chapel Hill guitar-and-drums duo, has released two albums of careening, '90s-style indie rock. The snappy tension is matched by neurotic, often uncomfortable lyrics, but the tunes are both catchy and insightful. Songwriter Joe Taylor is a master of telling us things about himself and ourselves we might not like. As for Transportation, think a late-'70s power pop band trying its hand at yacht rock, or Badfinger with a bit more swag. The Chapel Hill trio takes a soft-edged approach, writing about women and men and the games they both play. —Corbie Hill
