Locally Grown series with Virgins Family Band, Morning Brigade, Clockwork Kids 

When: Thu., Aug. 29, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: Free
Locally Grown is a free film-and-music series atop a parking deck on Chapel Hill's Rosemary Street. Though the movies tend toward typical outdoors summer fare, the music is, true to the concept's name, locally sourced. Consider this troika of bands to be seedlings, new acts with great potential expectations. Virgins Family Band, who headline, work through a nebulous mix of jam-band esprit and indie-rock angles, suggesting a midpoint between Akron/Family's tangent-prone rock and Yeasayer's eccentric globalism. Morning Brigade makes bracing, bright-eyed folk-rock, with teenage wanderlust broadcast in full voices and major chords. Openers Clockwork Kids often recall the expired moment when everyone wanted a British accent and a disco-punk beat to ride, but their instrumental impasses give their revivalism space to stretch. —Grayson Currin
