Lilac Shadows, White Laces, Jenny Besetzt 

When: Thu., Aug. 9, 9:30 p.m. 2012
Price: $5

Three bands from three towns showcase only a bit of the span of what's permissible as indie rock in 2012. Led by pop savant Sam Logan, Chapel Hill's Lilac Shadows stretch his hooks like wire, twisting them through psychedelic guises and transmogrified poses. Like Spacemen 3 touched by honey, Lilac Shadows turn sprawls of static and clouds of sound into driving, long-distance earworms. Greensboro's Jenny Besetzt, meanwhile, interprets New Order on a budget, mixing bouncing pop and shambling rock in unequal measures. From Richmond, White Laces seem to bleed through their mix of simple songs and outsized arrangements, a pairing that suggests a garage rock band suddenly aiming for an arena slot between Muse and U2. Remember the enthusiasm and entreaty of the first Twilight Sad releases? Think that, just minus the accent. —Grayson Currin
