Schooner, Jaabs, Wesley Wolf

When: Sat., April 21, 9 p.m. 2012

It makes sense that Schooner and Wesley Wolfe found each other for a split 7-inch on Record Store Day. After all, the two Triangle rock outfits share a deft touch for hooks. Schooner's jams bubble up through slapbacked reverb, imbuing the melodic sensibilities of '50s and '60s pop with the fevered intensity of '90s indie rock. Reid Johnson's luxurious croon pairs well with squalling feedback, somehow accentuating the band's incredible catchiness. Wesley Wolfe's precise pop-rock taps Mac McCaughan-inspired momentum and rides it to nervy, riff-fueled conclusions. Jaabs also play. —Jordan Lawrence
