Milagres, The Big Sleep

When: Thu., March 8, 9 p.m. 2012

Each year, from late February to early April, the Triangle's location along the East Coast's touring axis pays mixed dividends: As bands head to Texas for the commercial and personal sinkhole of South by Southwest, they spend a night in town, playing at a local haunt just to break up the trip. For every great bill that results from the mess in Texas, three more area stages come clogged with dreck scraped from the bottom of the indie-rock barrel. Tonight, two Brooklyn bands fit that bill: Milagres' indie rock suffers through an Arcade Fire affliction, attaching overly earnest vocals to badly written songs and arrangements that are too scattershot to be grandiose. Likewise, on their latest, Nature Experiments, The Big Sleep aims only for anthems but delivers mostly hot air backed by beefy production. With Baobab. —Grayson Currin
