Drughorse Collective 

When: Fri., June 11, 10 p.m. 2010
Price: $8

The loose and incestuous association of bands that fall into or around the umbrella of Chapel Hill's Drughorse Collective has the potential to be the most productive musical clique in this state's history. Drughorse boasts a fleet of songwriters who ace good hooks on the regular—Max Indian's Carter Gaj and James Wallace, for instance, or Ryan Gustafson and Drughorse ally Stu McLamb of The Love Language. And they've got an infantry of the area's best instrumentalists at their disposal—guitarists Nick Jaegar and Jenks Miller, bassist and keyboardist Jeff Crawford, bassist and Light Pines bandleader Josh Pope. And from Max Indian's classic, faded Beatles charms to Light Pines' punchy, epic throb, they've got the stylistic range to evade easy definition.

Whether or not they will become as important as their potential suggests is a tough question: They'll eventually need help from a listening public wider than that of the Triangle (which is steadily happening), and certain conflicting personalities will need to find a middle ground. For this two-night stand, though, it's the songs and not their futures you should fret. The Light Pines, Veelee and Old Bricks (now with a gorgeous new four-piece lineup) split Friday night's bill, while Max Indian, Ryan Gustafson and Bright Young Things have the shared privilege Saturday night. —Grayson Currin
