Violet Vector and the Lovely Lovelies – Local 506 – June 25

Taking a large helping of ’60s girl-group pop, adding large dose of ’60s psychedelic and finishing it off with the fury of a punk rock band, Violet Vector and the Lovely Lovelies have one of the most unique styles in town. And playing live with cutely enticing yet venomous frontwoman Amanda Brooks, the band’s effervescent cataclysm of colorful keyboards, fuzzed-out bass lines and screeching guitar work is a whole lot of fun. Along with Chapel Hill’s Huguenots, who seem to have gotten even better at their own ridiculously catchy brand of retro rock every time I see them, the pair opening for the Black Hollies was solid enough to be a great bill without the headliner. Indeed it seemed that most of the audience got this impression. About half the crowd had left by the time I peaced out right before the last set. Guess they’d already had their fill from the Chapel Hill bands.
