Soft Company, The Houston Brothers, Darien 

When: Thu., Sept. 2, 10 p.m. 2010
Price: Free

Pay your respects: This is Chris Tamplin's final evening heading up Tir na nOg's Local Band Local Beer series after four years of providing Raleigh with free, well-booked Thursday night bills. Led by The Love Language keyboardist Missy Thangs, Soft Company headlines with artful pop nuggets that are lushly layered but unafraid to cut loose and drone out. Matt and Justin Faircloth pull double duty in Charlotte duo The Houston Brothers—Matt uses pedals to fill both guitarist and bassist roles, while Justin simultaneously plays drums and keys—though their smart, roots-rooted piano tunes sound the opposite of fatigued. The ethereal, folk-graced indie pop of Asheville's Darien Crossley wears the clear influence of Eisley, who inspired her first song.—Spencer Griffith
