Spider Bags, Fletcher, Last Year's Men 

When: Sat., July 17, 10 p.m. 2010

Carrboro's Spider Bags weren't born fully formed. Rather, New Jersey expatriate Dan McGee first spoke solo to his tape machine, multi-tracking hangover laments and existential neuroses by himself for the bulk of the band's debut, A Celebration of Hunger. Since, though, the Bags have become a stable trio that expertly tiptoes the jagged line between loose and tight, playing its sweat-streaked garage blasts with a compelling mix of assurance and abandon. These days, they're a must-see band. Chapel Hill newcomers Last Year's Men seem to have learned from the Bags' history. Produced by the Bags' McGee and featuring Bags bassist Gregg Levy, the trio's forthcoming debut is, indeed, fully formed, with wiry, electric romps like "I'll Be Gone" sidling anxiously beside forlorn floaters like "Old Letter." Brooklyn's Fletcher C. Johnson comes from that crowded band house with a load of mildly psychedelic country-soul gems, like Tom Petty escaping the airwaves. —Grayson Currin
