Country Mice, Young Buffalo, Rabbit on a Leash 

When: Thu., March 3, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $7

We Are Country Mice are from Brooklyn. That said, these city mice play a sort of retrospective rural rock. Songs like "A Good Old Fashioned Barn Raising" aren't too different from early Modest Mouse surf-meets-jangle-meets-stomp, while "The Ballad of John" aims for an electrified Springsteen character. Mississippi's Young Buffalo adds Africa-according-to-Paul Simon vocal harmonies to world-ish percussion. But sometimes, such as in "Three Deep," they mix these harmonies with a bright, optimistic post-punk punch. That's when they're at their best. These two acts play Durham as part of the great annual pilgrimage that brings hordes of bands, like so many van-bound monarch butterflies, to South by Southwest, in Texas. —Corbie Hill
