Pearl & the Beard, Animal Alphabet, Brett Harris 

When: Sat., March 24, 10 p.m. 2012
Price: $6

The mismatched styles of this Saturday bill don't exactly clash, but they don't complement each other either. Brooklyn's Pearl and the Beard root their stadium-size melodies inside a mix of strings and other mostly acoustic instrumentation that alternately leans toward the classical and the Appalachian. The songs of local folk-pop singer Brett Harris, while every bit as fetching, are drastically more subdued, meaning he'll likely come off too weak, or Pearl will seem too bombastic. Animal Alphabet complicate the night further. Their chamber-music-meets-Radiohead approach is strung-out but melodic. Still, it may be too out-there for fans of the more straightforward headliners. —Jordan Lawrence
