Modern Skirts, Deleted Scenes, Wembley 

When: Thu., Nov. 11, 8 p.m. 2010
Price: $6-8

Textural, hooky indie rock is the game here; all three bands are clear winners. Deleted Scenes' name suggests a lack of cinematic virtue, but the D.C. quintet cuts dramatic anthems that build to grand payoffs. Veteran Athens quartet Modern Skirts have come into their own with freewheeling, futuristic pop that's heavily flavored with '60s psychedelia, creating a remarkably wonderful marriage of The Flaming Lips and The Beach Boys. Hillsborough foursome Wembley is a worthy opener for the out-of-towners, serving up brilliant bits of aching, perfectly orchestrated indie pop. —Spencer Griffith
