When: Fri., Oct. 1, 9 p.m. 2010

Stars gained fame mostly through their association and work with Canada's Broken Social Scene, but Torquil Campbell and friends had been pedaling their nostalgic, heart-on-sleeve wares for a few years before BSS forgot it in people all over the world. However, while the wide-eyed earnestness of Campbell and co-vocalist Amy Millan can be exhilarating at times (as shimmering tunes like "Elevator Love Letter" or "Ageless Beauty" effortlessly illustrate), it can also come off as cloying and treacly. The tough, bass-led pop of Chapel Hill's Light Pines definitely adds heft.—David Raposa
