If you’re wandering around aimlessly on Thursday, desperately seeking your daily six-string fix, look no farther than the Caledonia, where Maryland four-piece Heavy Lights anchors a bill that also features the solo version of local outfit The Viking Progress and new fuzz-pop band Jinx Remover. The touring band plays sunny, irrepressible indie rock in the festival-headlining mold; it’s enjoyable, certainly capable, if not groundbreaking. The two locals offer more interesting takes on shambling psych-folk and lo-fi country-rock, respectively. Jinx Remover frontman Kade Kahl is an emerging lo-fi crooner in the Bob Pollard/Jonathan Richman vein, all unsteady swagger and winsome self-doubt.
