Megafaun, Canine Heart Sounds 

When: Tue., April 29, 9 p.m. 2014
Price: $18-$20

Megafaun has been on hiatus since October 2012, but the band's four members have kept busy. Brad Cook lent his talents to friends' projects as a producer and sideman, while his brother went solo as Phil Cook and His Feat before recruiting a band to form The Guitarheels. Joe Westerlund launched the whimsical Grandma Sparrow project, and Nick Sanborn founded the ascendant dance-pop duo Sylvan Esso. That's just a sampler of their very busy break. Still, Megafaun's absence has been felt. The band's far-reaching mix of folk-rock and avant-garde techniques, plus their role as a collaborative catalyst, made them one of the area's most adventurous acts.

They'll join family and friends on stage for a two-night homecoming at the mid-sized Pinhook, which will almost certainly be packed for this return, which the band says will be short-lived. For the first show, the idiosyncratic post-rock outfit Canine Heart Sounds opens. The band includes Joe Westerlund's brother, drummer Dan. For the second night, Durham's rising folk-rock outfit Loamlands, which features Brad Cook on bass, warms the stage. —Bryan C. Reed
