The Standard and The Kingsbury Manx

Saturday

Yep Roc Records is developing quite a reputation for churning out tasty indie rock. The Chapel Hill, N.C., label throws two very different bands our way in one Saturday night bill in the Fargo VFW's basement. The Standard played Ralph's Corner in the summer of 2004, bringing its shimmering, yet brooding guitar blasts and Radiohead-like vocals. As foreboding and enjoyably cold as the Portland, Ore., quartet is, the retro warmth of its Yep Roc hometown label mates, The Kingsbury Manx (pictured), seems a world away. The latter lets loose with a groovy psychedelic vibe that's a cross between The Shins and The Deaths. Grand Forks' Nic Garcia opens the show at 10 p.m. There is a $5 cover for this 21 and older show. (701) 235-8243.
