North Highlands 

Brooklyn's North Highlands crafts dreamy indie pop that rivals its home borough's better-known act, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. This five-piece isn't as reverb friendly as its contemporaries, but its 2011 release, "Wild One," does showcase the band's knack for infectious songwriting and sing-along melodies. Lead vocalist Brenda Malvani anchors the band's sound with her distinct intonation, which rises and crashes perfectly with the rest of the music. Four other bands also play that night, including local outfits The Demos (which will be returning from a showcase at Toronto's North By Northeast Festival), White Picket Fence, and Branch Davidians, as well as Secret Cove.

North Highlands performs Saturday, June 16, 9 p.m. at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $7-$9. 454-2966,
