Shana Falana, Prisms, Drag Sounds

When: Sun., June 23, 8 p.m. 2013

It's ironic, using psychedelic rock as a vehicle to celebrate sobriety. But here it is: New York's Shana Falana, more than two years sober, marks the occasion with 2012's In the Light EP. An entrancing collection of dense texturing, glassy drones and ethereal vocals, In the Light eschews most of the depressive murk typical of shoegaze, going instead for an uplifting and resonant clarity. Indeed, this is clear-headed dream-pop. Durham's Prisms and Greensboro's Drag Sounds offer contrast with their respective slow motorik smolder and stringy Velvet Underground choogle. —Bryan C Reed
