Oh, if only every birthday were as badass as Merge Records' 20th: On Saturday, July 18, music from eight Merge artists—including The Arcade Fire, Spoon, Superchunk and The Magnetic Fields—will serve as scores for a set of new dance works presented by Triangle Youth Ballet in Carolina Theater's Fletcher Hall. Raleigh's The Rosebuds will perform a new piece of music for the event, which will includes works by North Carolina Youth Tap Ensemble, Pamela Pietro (American Dance Festival faculty/Tisch-NYU) and several others. The show comes, of course, the weekend before Merge throws its five-day birthday party in Chapel Hill (July 22-26 at Cat's Cradle and Memorial Hall with Polvo, Conor Oberst, Richard Buckner, She & Him and at least two dozen others) and just days before the end of the 2009 American Dance Festival. The premiere will comprise part of the 2009 Triangle Youth Ballet & Friends series.

Speaking of The Rosebuds, follow the jump for some video of the band playing on Cabarrus St. in front of Lincoln Theatre during a Band Together benefit for the Lucy Daniels Center for Early Childhood on Saturday. And it looks like the ’Buds spent its Sunday in a new Raleigh studio tracking a fresh tune. More on that soon...
