Superchunk, Veelee

When: Fri., March 4, 9 p.m. 2011

Most every time Superchunk—more or less the unfaltering anchor of Triangle indie rock, not necessarily in sound but certainly in vision and importance—plays Cat's Cradle, they book a blue-chip upstart as openers. Last time, it was the sidewinding Durham trio Hammer No More the Fingers; this time, it's the serpentine Carrboro duo Veelee. The move not only shows that the Triangle still makes loads of great music and that Superchunk somehow has its collective ear to the ground but also that Mac McCaughan, Laura Ballance, Jim Wilbur and Jon Wurster are as perfectly punchy as any band that's come in their wake. If last year's excellent Majesty Shredding didn't convince you that the scene veterans still have it, see them live; they remain a wonder. —Grayson Currin
