Hung out with my buddies in JPhono1 on Monday night, at my other buddy Alex’s place, to do some promo shots for them. I love that top one so much.
Tag: local music
concerts: magnolia collective, jphono1, mark holland
A farewell show of sorts for MagCo, long among my local favorites, as drummer Jon Truesdale and his wife Jo are moving out of the country — a wonderful live goodbye to this lineup of a band that started as a fun covers side project and has produced some of my favorite music in the…
concerts: slingshot cash @ local 506
The 506 has launched a new series, where 3 locals play sets at 3pm on a Sunday; this is a great idea, and this past Sunday Slingshot Cash played (with Smoothrays and the Stray Owls), and it was great. Also Trav finally identified specifically what it is that I am disliking when I say that…
carrboro music festival 2015
Trav and I wandered around on Sunday and listened to music and caught up with people and bought vinyl and ate things. Stuff we like, you know. Full set is here.
concerts: pokey lafarge, escondido, and ellis dyson & the shambles
Pokey and Escondido photos — both great sets — up on Speakers. Ellis Dyson and the Shambles are a local band, with the kind of sharp songwriting and energy and stage makeup who really, really remind me of Holy Ghost Tent Revival about five years ago. I’m very much into them, and they might very…
house show: caleb caudle
Caleb Caudle played in my living room on Friday, doing a lot of songs from last year’s stunning Paint Another Layer On Your Heart, and a bunch from his upcoming Carolina Ghost, which looks to be even more stunning. You didn’t come to this show, but you should have.
concerts: the river otters @ steel string brewery
My buddy Robinson, who used to live next door to the Cowboy, has been playing with his new band the River Otters for a while now, but I’m a terrible person who stopped leaving the house for a while. Trav and I went out Saturday night, though, and of course I wasn’t disappointed — the…
concerts: spider bags & las rosas @ the nightlight
A few weeks ago the Cowboy and I went to see Spider Bags, one of our mutual beloved locals. And Spider Bags were great, because they are always great; the power of the band expanded from a trio to a quartet means even louder and even more lines to follow, and it suits the songwriting…
concerts: she keeps bees @ local 506
I hadn’t been in the freshly renovated Local 506 in a few weeks — not since they finished the renovations, for sure — and it looks gorgeous, but this show was Monday night, because I am an idiot who took a job on the same day she planned to spend seven hours flying home from…
concerts: carolina still @ cat’s cradle
I love these guys so much. Too much fun.
