Max Indian, Ryan Gustafson

When: Sat., April 17, 9 p.m. 2010

Throwback guitars and sunshine hooks abound in Max Indian’s shambling,soulful pop. This Chapel Hill quartet clearly knows how to swing a Beatle-esque melody and, thankfully, how to craft a clever lyric to accompany it. The combination is as charismatic as the songs are swaggering. For the show, they’ll be paired with their Drughorse Collective companion Ryan Gustafson, whose earnest Americana runs the gamut from classic rocktoblue-eyedcountry. Sharingmembersand an apparent obsession with a ’60s crackle, Max Indian and Gustafson blend vintage aesthetics with enough energy to create songs you’ll be singing before you realize you even know them. This is a birthday party for Slim’s bartender Matt Alston. How’s that for employee benefits? —Ashley Melzer
