Oulipo, Bellows, Charming Youngsters

When: Sun., Jan. 6, 9 p.m. 2013

Though Raleigh's Oulipo are named for a literary movement that often placed playful limitations on word choice or style, the band itself yields to no such constraints. Their maximalist pop suggests the grandeur of Broken Social Scene and the layers of Animal Collective, rushing headlong with euphoria. Openers The Charming Youngsters keep to coffee-shop basics, but their bright-eyed, big-city pop is no less enthusiastic. Emotionally loaded and somber New York band Bellows moan in the bill's middle. —Grayson Currin
