Oak City 7 series with Southern Culture On The Skids, Hammer No More The Fingers, Unifier, Brent Cobb, Jessica Long & The New Kind

When: Thu., July 25, 5-10:30 p.m. 2013

Oak City 7 is a series of sponsor-driven concerts in Raleigh's downtown City Plaza; each four-or-five-band bill pogos between genres, so that salsa sidelines alt-country and staid bluegrass neighbors lascivious funk. Of all the shows, tonight's offering is the one not to miss. Southern Culture on the Skids—a band as identifiably North Carolinian as the barbecue, trailer parks and stock cars that populate their wild-eyed country-surf-blues-whatever-rock inclusiveness—headlines. Hammer No More the Fingers take the slot directly in front of SCOTS; despite the band's relative silence in the last two years, their razor-wire, high-harmony indie rock remains one of the region's benchmarks. Metal-plated Greensboro pop-punks Unifier and affable country crooner Brent Cobb take the middle. Show up early for Jessica Long & the New Kind, a delightful and bracing pop sparkle. —Grayson Currin
