Dirty Projectors, Future Islands

When: Sat., Oct. 5, 8 p.m. 2013

Though they both fall within the ever-so-lumpy realm of indie rock, the most direct thread between the intricate math-soul-rock of The Dirty Projects and electronic pleaders Future Islands is intensity. With the Projectors, look for it in the arrangements, where the complicated vocals slip in and out of the cracks in Dave Longstreth's guitar calculus, lines leaping around each other in great bursts and bolts. With Future Islands, look no further than the brow of Sam Herring, which becomes a terrain map of engorged blood vessels and sweaty streams. He's the cartographer of his own melodrama, then, a frontman who documents his own misery so that you and he can have company in it. This is a presentation of the Carolina Union Activities Board, but everyone's invited. —Grayson Currin
