Minor Stars, Wicked Tomorrow, Blackbells 

When: Mon., March 21, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $5

Chapel Hill trio Minor Stars are a hard act to get a handle on. While psych is a consistent undercurrent on their eight-song debut, The Death of the Sun in the Silver Sea, they run the gamut within that genre. Some tracks pursue dreamy, billowing prog, while others rumble like stoner metal built on a feral riffage and muscular throb cadged from Sabbath. Still other tracks split the difference, coating the pugilistic pulse with thick layers of fuzz. With his lean baritone riding high in the mix, frontman Eric Wallen keeps his head above the churning roar. —Chris Parker
