Odessa Records Showcase with Wild Wild Geese, Wesley Wolf, Shit Horse

When: Thu., Oct. 7, 10 p.m. 2010

Chapel Hill's Odessa Records might just be the Triangle's most diverse rock label, and this Local Band Local Beer showcase supports the argument. Headliner Wesley Wolfe combines a bleeding heart, bright melodic hooks and off-kilter arrangements with the skill of a New Pornographer. Far more down-and-dirty, Shit Horse delivers mangy psych rock with rabid intensity. As the band's murky riffs induce delirium, singer Danny Mason barks with the fever of James Brown. Less trashy but just as crazed, Wild Wild Geese match catchy, upbeat tunes with slacker guitar haze. The results approximate Built to Spill's tones, just set on Superchunk-style fun. —Jordan Lawrence
