Rock & Pop

Peter Holsapple & Chris Stamey

When: Sat., July 18, 8 p.m. 2009

In their twenties, Peter Holsapple and Chris Stamey defined 1980s jangle-pop as founding members of the dB's. In 1983, Stamey split for a solo recording and production career, while the Holsapple-led dB's carried on for two more albums. The pair reunited in 1991 for the low-key Mavericks album, and again for this year's Here and Now. Working apart, they've made good music, but working together their harmonies magnify one another's voice and their songwriting styles prove complementary. Now in their fifties, they've retained the charm and melodic hooks of youth even as their lyrics deepen with midlife experience. Best of all, they sound renewed and happy to be working together.. On Saturday, July 18, at Cafe du Nord (2170 Market St., San Francisco). 8 p.m., $18.
