Local Band Local Beer: Hotline, Happy Abandon, Heartracer

When: Thu., March 10, 9:30 p.m. 2016

When Raleigh art-punk outfit Oulipo changed its name to Hotline, the group smuggled in all the sonic trademarks the name might require, ditching the skronky sounds in favor of clean-cut eighties sophistipop. The new tunes don’t knock quite as hard, but the clever compositions suggest capable hands. Chapel Hill’s Happy Abandon opens; the band augments boilerplate hooky indie rock with shredding keyboard solos to add theatrical color. —David Ford Smith
