Ben Davis & the Jetts, Midnight Plus One, Kingsbury Manx

When: Thu., May 30, 10 p.m. 2013

In less than two minutes, Carrboro quartet Midnight Plus One delivers on the promise of their song title "Modern Witch." Like Sonic Youth dipped in The Jesus & Mary Chain's devilish honey, they slip sweet, spooky vocals within grooves of formidable distortion and noise—a blend that, if you will, bewitches with danger and drama. One of indie rock's great spectacles of understatement, The Kingsbury Manx tucks compositional complications and lyrical one-liners into resplendent pop tunes. Ben Davis & the Jetts fill the gap between post-punk throb and post-rock grandeur; they headline. —Grayson Currin
