The holidays are a time of happy returns and reunions. That's the spirit with which we greet The Veldt, a fixture of Chapel Hill's fertile early-'90s scene. They're one of several bands of that era, like Black Girls, that surely seemed destined for greater things. They were quirky—even by Chapel Hill standards—but in a what-will-they-do-next manner. Led by the Chavis brothers, their sound was an arty/slinky blend of U.K. darkwave (think Echo & the Bunnymen), Northern Soul and alt-rock bristle. After recording their debut, Afrodisiac, in London, they secured a deal from Polygram and released two more albums over the next several years before bassist Dave Burris left for a career in film. (He's now a producer on Survivor.) It's that original lineup we'll see tonight. The band continued in various incarnations and went to New York before ending in 2007 as the Chavis brothers pursued their new project, Apollo Heights.

It wouldn't be Christmas without The Bleeding Hearts, Raleigh's chunky, rocking stalwarts. They'll help you revisit the fist-pumping heyday of Thin Lizzy, Slade and Cheap Trick. The $5 bill starts at 10 p.m. —Chris Parker
