Carrboro Block Party with Lost in the Trees, The Love Language, Loamlands (in the parking lot) and Steph Stewart & the Boyfriends, The Jackets (in the club)

When: Sun., May 5, 4-9 p.m. 2013

In the last decade, the Triangle has produced a number of nationally celebrated upstarts. Two of those bands, Lost in the Trees and The Love Language, favor large ensembles taken to very different ends: Led by Ari Picker's keening croon, Lost in the Trees back songs of emotional surrender with arrangements that fight that tide by pairing bold rock to classical devices. In The Love Language's worldview, big sounds bolster big hooks, with rising walls of keyboards, guitar and percussion pushing beneath frontman Stu McLamb's half-sad, half-smirking croon. They'll co-headline this free party for Carrboro Day, while two Midtown Dickens refugees open with their new quivering alt-country act Loamlands. Look for more music inside Cat's Cradle and The ArtsCenter. —Grayson Currin
