Mayflies USA, North Elementary, Library 

When: Sat., Jan. 8, 9:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $6

Fans of catchy rock probably have this date circled since it features two of Chapel Hill's finest tunesmiths. North Elementary's keyboards provide an atmospheric sheen like creamy icing on shambling excuse-me melodies. The Mayflies USA are more spirited, vacillating between bright guitars (think The Byrds and Big Star) and punchy, ragged rock recalling The Replacements or Deathray Davies, as exemplified on their fine swan song, 2002's Walking in a Straight Line. They've reunited for several shows during the last few years. Brooklyn's The Library plays tender achy indie pop behind guitarists Jason Capleton (The Comas) and Matt Long (Mayflies USA). —Chris Parker
