Openers Brookville know a little something about pop music - and being under-appreciated: They're otherwise known as the side project of Ivy's Andy Chase. (Chase also produced the Trashcans' In the Music.) The band's 45-minute opening set was simply marvelous, song after song of mellow harmonic pop that felt like the sonic equivalent of marsh mellow fluff.

Brookville's tunes aren't far removed from Ivy's cooing, martini-bar synthpop -- and on the numbers where Chase took keyboards, the connection was obvious - but they're quite a bit more muscular. And thankfully, only occasionally did its songs drift off into the ether. A cover of The The's "Slow Emotion Replay" was a highlight. Incidentally, Brookville's new album, Broken Lights, is due September 29.
