Light Pines, Twelve Thousand Armies, Nudehues 

When: Fri., Nov. 5, 10 p.m. 2010
Price: $5

Troika might be in full swing in Durham, but, between Future Islands in Chapel Hill and this rock party in Raleigh, they surrendered some of the best locals this year. The Light Pines are the most audacious band yet to come from the sprawling collective Drughorse; rather than lock in languidly to the melodies of the past, like Max Indian or The Love Language, the bass-heavy band lashes songs that suggest Slint starting a pop group. It's cool but foreboding, like a cinematic walk in an alley. Affirming the usual Drughorse aesthetic (a fine thing to do, for what it's worth), 12,000 Armies jangle and jerk through songs that walk fine lines between lamentation and celebration, between bleary eyes and bright ones. With Nudehues. —Grayson Currin
