Kingsbury Manx 

When: Wed., July 14, 7 p.m. 2010
Price: $5–$10

Given the circumstances of a largely after-work crowd sipping its own beer, eating its own snacks and toting its own children to cheap shows on a wide lawn, Duke Performances' Music in the Garden series attracts surprisingly reverent and attentive audiences. That condition is crucial for tonight's performance by The Kingsbury Manx, a Carrboro quintet whose dreamy, sad-smile pop is often understated but never underdeveloped. A lattice of sly wordplay and intricate parts (hidden keyboard lines and slightly shifting rhythms) that suggest the craftsmanship and detail of a sand sculptor, The Manx's tunes wait calmly for your adoration, sparkling in the pale glow of sunset. This band and this series are two of the area's true musical treasures; tonight, during the Manx's "These Three Things," they waltz.—Grayson Currin
