Tomahawks, Lonnie Walker, Houston Bros.

When: Sat., Oct. 30, 8:30 p.m. 2010

This stacked bill starts with Charlotte duo The Houston Brothers, who work overtime employing pedals and crafty techniques to sound like a four-man band. Far from a novelty, the siblings' relaxed, keyboard-centric pop is sharp and just slightly quirky. Speaking of quirks, Lonnie Walker's sputtering, mile-a-minute indie rock rambles have just the sort of twisted lyricism to match its winding guitars; their frenzied live sets feel as if they're always on the verge of losing control. In this case, that's a very good thing. The easygoing pop of Nick Jaeger-led local supergroup The Tomahawks emerges from a lo-fi haze with a bevy of persistent melodies. —Spencer Griffith
