Bears in the City, The Color Exchange, Happy Abandon (Back Room)

When: Fri., May 22, 8:30 p.m. 2015

Chapel Hill’s Bears in the City play their last show, leaving a void another pleasant roots-rock band will undoubtedly fill. Their melodramatic fare has always fit like a thrift-store coat—stylish and vintage, sure, but it’s hard to escape the feeling someone else wore it first. With grand, sweeping U2-isms, The Color Exchange’s secondhand suit fits a little better. Happy Abandon opens with sinuous, delicate material that splits the difference between Death Cab for Cutie’s tell-alls and Tim Buckley’s wanderings. —Corbie Hill
