The Head & the Heart, Thao with the Get Down Stay Down, Devil Whale 

When: Thu., Sept. 22, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $15-17

You can't tell the players apart without a scorecard, and that's especially true of today's indie folk scene. With Bright Blitzen Ruckus Brothers & Sons all but ready to film their American Express commercial, the whole landscape's taken to beards, banjos and harmonies, like '90s longhairs and flannel. Sub Pop (naturally) snatched up The Head and the Heart's 2010 self-titled, self-released debut, rereleasing it earlier this year. It's a moody blend of The Band keyboards, trilling Beatles harmonies and ramshackle organic sway. It's only slightly less derivative than Maroon 5, but, that said, it's well-executed and alluring. Had it arrived a half-dozen years earlier, they could lead the charge rather than ride its coattails. With Thao and the Get Down Stay Down and the Devil Whale. —Chris Parker
