The Love Language
Local 506The fuzzy pop nuggets that comprise The Love Language's debut sound were born out of a garage, which is fitting: Ex-Capulets leader Stu McLamb, in a post-breakup (band and girl) haze, rented a storage space and laid down the nine songs himself on a four-track. Tonight's the Triangle release party, though you wouldn't know by listening. Paying no allegiance to era or genre, The Love Language blends classic pop and soul with a couple of decades of indie-rock influence. Now a full-fledged septet, the dynamic band breathes new life into McLamb's lo-fi creations. Max Indian and Oh Captain, My Captain open the $7 show, which starts at 8 p.m. —Spencer Griffith

Chapel Hill
I Went to the House but Did Not Enter
Memorial Hall, UNC Campus—In a continuation of the adventurous live programming of Carolina Performing Arts, this is an experimental piece that delves into texts by key 20th-century modernists, conceived by German director Heiner Goebbels. I Went to the House but Did Not Enter combines music and theater for interpretations of T.S. Eliot's The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, Maurice Blanchot's The Madness of the Day and Samuel Beckett's Worstward Ho! in a trio of tableaux. The performance runs tonight at 8 p.m. and tomorrow at 7:30 p.m.; ticket prices range from $25-$40. For more information, call 843-3333 or visit —Zack Smith

Right on Spencer, you probably nailed it better than anyone has, "paying no allegiance to era or genre," that's a money line right there.

The Love Language is the sweetest stuff going right now, no offense everyone else, I just love this shit. Along with all the national press they are getting (pitchfork), I wrote some local press about their last cradle show on my blog:

between MAX Indian and The Love Lang, this 506 show will probably sell out so buy tics right now, what up.
