Balsa Gliders, Taylor Leonhardt

When: Sat., Dec. 20, 8:30 p.m. 2014

More than a decade into their own casual career, the Raleigh-based Balsa Gliders continue to sharpen their take on early indie rock. Like Guided by Voices boasting a Southern charm or Archers of Loaf angling to play your backyard cookout, the Gliders deliver simple hooks and adult sentiments over guitars that don’t get too loud and beats that don’t get too heavy. This is rock that’s happy to be pegged as adult contemporary (their new LP is called Courteous Americans, no less), as they take the label as an invitation to distort its meaning. —Grayson Haver Currin

Price: $8-$10
