Wade Bowen – Berkeley Cafe (roots/country)

Wade Bowen walks the tightrope between contemporary country and the Old Style Texas Hill Country style of country music.  What is produced is something that sounds at little of both – but also with an acoustic roots rock feel to it. Bottle into Gold & Walking along the Fenceline are excellent examples of this fusion. Wade has a great voice that has power and yet is gentle when need be – and his supporting cast of musicians complement the sound very, very well.  For those of you in need of a good country fix, this is the perfect choice for you.

** 8pm Show, $15 cover**

Futurebirds w/ Filthybird – Kings Barcade (Indie/Psychedelic)

Athens, GA-based Futurebirds have a unique sound that crosses lines of country, indie, surfer rock, experimental w/psychedelic flavorings. This conglomeration grows on you quickly, and you realize that this sounds works – very well. Their sounds are catchy and the vocal styles just make you want to sing along. Songs like Dirty D, MJB & Battle for Rome are excellent examples of their collective of sounds and how it works so well.  This has proven very successful for them as they have had successful nationwide tours with fellow Athens natives Dead Confederate. Come check out the show, you will not be disappointed and will have a chance to catch some cutting edge music. Local faves Filthybird will be opening the show with their own indie stylings. This will be a great show.

**9:30pm Show $9 Cover**

Archnemesis w/ Kraddy – Lincoln Theatre (Electronica)

Oh my god!  That was my first reaction – this is HUGE to be hosting one of the heavyweights in this genre – they are on par with Pretty Lights and will bombard your senses with Hi-energy Lights, Sound and vibe that will be second to none. They are in the middle of a national tour and Raleigh is certainly fortunate to catch them on their way to SXSW.  Rest up and be ready to dance till you drop. If this doesn’t get you moving, I don’t know what will. Kraddy, Love Light and others opening.  Expect a 10:30-11 start for Archnemesis

**Show 8:30, cover $15**

That 1 Guy & Duende Mountain Duo – Lincoln Theatre (Experimental/Drums and Bass/Hip Hop)

One of the most unique musical experiences that you will see, That 1 Guy has devised his own sound (and instrument). The sound is very entertaining and comes out as a drums & bass/ beat vocals hybrid. A simple listen to Buttmachine or One will prove my point – this stuff is off the charts and he is on a international tour so catch him when you can. Raleigh is getting more than its fair share of music this week! As a great opener, Duende Mountain Duo – North Carolina-based band that has the sound and the energy of Jam band of International acclaim – Particle….

This is going to be a great night of music and I would certainly recommend that this is not a show to be missed.

The Pietasters – Cats Cradle (ska/soul)

Anyone who went to college in the Mid-Atlantic/Southeast should know these guys as they have been a fixture of the college music scene for the better part of two decades in one form or another.  Very few bands play this Funk/Soul/Ska and they fill a void left behind by the likes of Fighting Gravity & The Mighty Mighty Bosstones. Get ready for a rollicking good time – lots of music, the powerful horns and dancing! Rest up!

There is a hefty line up with Archbishops of Blount St, Petrovic Blasting Company & Brian Hill opening up the festivities as this is the Triangle Ska Fest – impromptu style. You can expect an 11pm start for the Pietasters.

Perpetual Groove – Lincoln Theatre (Indie/Jam)

Athens-based indie jam that has evolved over the years from a strictly jam band into a rock/jam band with some great psychedelic undertones. Simply a great sound blending elements of traditional instrumentation, electronic sounds and some damn fine vocals. These guys are a local version of genre stalwarts Widespread Panic & Lotus. If you are a long time or a new fan (or about to become a fan) it is simply amazing on their musical transition over the years – the way cool thing about this transition is they have retained elements of their psychedelic/electronica/jam background and have incorporated it into their Indy sound with the result a true winner for the region and even on their limited national tours. This promises to be a great night of music and jamming

The Moderate – Pourhouse (Indie/Folk)

Washington, DC-based Indie Rockers with a folk/mex flair, catch them while they headline the 3rd Annual Benefit for the Tisch Brain Tumor Center.  These guys have a decent following here and seem to be able to get down to the area every month or two. Great sound – with crisp instrumentals laying a solid foundation for the indie/progressive vocals. Certainly worth a listen as this sets up nicely for a great night of music for a worthy cause. David Tichener and Whembly open the show – expect a 10:30 start for the headliners.

**9pm show, $10 cover**

Acoustic Manner – Woodys @ City Market (Bluegrass)

Local Bluegrass band led by one of the best (and youngest) banjo players in the state. These guys have been all over the Triangle scene for the better part of 2 years. Prior to that, some of them were in the Barefoot Manner which had a great Yonder Mountain String Band feel to it. Solid bluegrass and catchy tunes – this should give you a great little bluegrass fix if you are so inclined.

** 10pm show, TBA cover**

Steep Canyon Rangers – Lincoln Theatre (Bluegrass)

Quite Simply the best, (and best known) bluegrass band in North Carolina, this Brevard/Asheville band (who got their start in Chapel Hill) have been tearing up the scene for 10 years now. Along the way they have been collecting numerous accolades including Bluegrass Album of the Year and Emerging Artist Awards. This current tour takes them on their way up to New York where they will appear on Late Night with David Letterman along with one of their long-time collaborators, Steve Martin (yes, THAT Steve Martin).

These guys have a great sound – and the harmonization is second to none in the genre. Between Woody’s guitar/vocals, Mike on vocals/mandolin, Graham on bass vocals/banjo and Nicky – one of the best fiddlers in the business – this band, while 10 years old, is just getting started. If you have any interest in Bluegrass, this is the band to see – it is not to be missed!
