Montreal singer/songwriters and sometime Broken Social Scenesters Amy Millan and Torquil Campbell wring out their bleeding hearts as Stars, sapping love-struck desperation and large-scale dynamics into a gooseflesh cocktail of Canadian alt-rock and English indie pop. June release The Five Ghosts (Vagrant) is the band's latest. Geographer, an elegant synths-and-strings trio out of San Francisco, opens. Tickets $15. 10 p.m. Sunday. Republic, 828 S. Peters St., 528-8282; www.republicnola.com.
