Summerbirds in the Cellar shares members with the moody pop-rock band Now It's Overhead, and the two bands do share similar sounds. The group spends half its time in Athens, Ga., so R.E.M. comparisons are inevitable, but there's a bit more polish to R.E.M.'s ragtag jangle. Summerbirds' latest is With the Hands of the Hunter It All Becomes Dead, an album densely layered with pulsing synths, cooed vocals, and jagged guitars.

Hear the other bands from this concert: R.E.M., Dead Confederate, Papercranes, Johnathan Rice.
