The Love Language – Local 506 – March 28

Full of boundless energy, palpable emotion and enough dance-laden hooks to keep a club moving all night, the music of The Love Language is ready made for a party, a fact that was made perfectly clear Saturday night at the band’s CD release celebration. The band tore through a set of its bombastic pop gems, packing its set with feeling from beginning to end. Lead-singer Stuart McLamb led the group with the confident swagger of big band leaders of old, working his oh-so-piercing croon to near perfection. It was a performance that easily showed why the band got so much attention for its performances at South By Southwest. Carrboro’s Max Indian also gave a killer performance, imbuing its easily accessible pop-rock with enough power to stand toe to toe with the headliner. The Love Language’s touring mates Oh Captain, My Captain opened the night with a slightly drab set. Overly long and lacking in the arrangements, it was the only disappointing part of the night. But after the sets that followed it, it was hard to remember such small gripes.
