Lilac Shadows, Toddlers, Charming Youngsters 

When: Fri., Sept. 2, 10 p.m. 2011
Price: $5

Sam Logan is one hell of a pop songwriter. As one-fourth of the Rubber Souled Huguenots and now as the leader of the bigger, darker Lilac Shadows, Logan has fashioned songs that sail with super-smooth momentum, riding earworm hooks to irresistible catharsis. In his current outfit, Logan and a team of Triangle pop rock aces bolster his songs with tremendous walls of shadowy distortion. It's a mix of light and dark that could come off as trite, an attempt to grow the mystique of his music without actually having to change it much. But Logan's new shoegazing tones bolster his large-hearted songs, providing a crushing counterpoint to his romantic ideals. The Shadows are joined by the Toddlers, who give sad-bastard country an indie rock makeover, with grungy guitar tones and sly bass lines augmenting the depravity of their lonely odes. The Charming Youngsters open. —Jordan Lawrence
