Tisch Brain Tumor Center Benefit with The Moderate, Wembley, Matt Douglas

When: Fri., Feb. 25, 9 p.m. 2011

The Moderate's third annual concert benefitting the Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke—an organization that's helped the band's pal Dan Reeves, as well as the late local music superfan Cy Rawls—is also a homecoming event for the D.C. quartet, half of whom are Raleigh natives. Hints of those Southern roots show in the band's driving pop-rock. Hillsborough four-piece Wembley sounds deceptively simple, using clever arrangements that scatter subtle accouterments between bursts of keys and shards of guitar that bounce between coed vocals. Matt Douglas—co-leader of The Small Ponds and frontman of The Proclivities—opens with a well-written batch of tasteful ballads. —Spencer Griffith
