Rock for Roe with the Mountain Goats, Blooz Travellerzz, Creedence Queerwater Revival

When: Sun., Jan. 20, 7 p.m. 2013

At this benefit for the pro-choice activism of NARAL NC and celebration of Roe v. Wade's 40th anniversary, instant attraction meets infinite intrigue: The Mountain Goats constitute the former category, as John Darnielle leaves his rock band behind for a night to snap up requests from the audience. If the sweat beads down his brow at an alarming rate tonight, attribute it to a combination of the crowded conditions and the work it takes to instantaneously (try to) remember the most obscure selections from a long-crowded songbook. In the opening slots, permutations of local bands take on covers: Mount Moriah and Hiss Golden Messenger join in the classic-rock-covering Blooz Traveler, while Midtown Dickens' Kym Register co-leads the Fogerty love of Creedence Queerwater Revival. The show sold out in a matter of hours, but a limited number of tickets will be available at the door. —Grayson Currin
