Woody Pines w/ John Wesley Satterfield & his Damn Fine Band, Emily Hearn; Big Something 

When: Thu., Aug. 11 2011
Price: $7; $6
The Big Something — Rumbling saxophone solos and processed guitars that seem to ding: this is a band where the tone is big. Like MGMT or the Flaming Lips, there are plenty of magical moments that make you wonder “how’d they get those sounds?” The answer may be in the keyboard flourishes from Josh Kagel or Casey Cranford’s sax that functions like a funk rhythm. Once known as the “Anonymous Band from Burlington,” these North Carolinian synth-lovers have gone beyond obscurity with some inimitable but captivating noises. Nick MacDaniels never sounds stressed at the helm with vocals: he’s too busy stretching out songs with relaxed grooves. Their sound doesn’t roll heads, but the popping beats will make heads bounce.
