Late last January, American Aquarium recruited its posse to Raleigh. For much of the last decade, the Raleigh alt-country upstarts had worked the roads like whiskey-fed pack mules, gradually rising from small pubs and backwater bars to major opening slots and big headlining tours. Concurrent with the release of what, to date, stands as its contemplative-and-compelling opus, Wolves, the band staged two nights in its hometown's biggest rock club and watched far-flung fans flock to town. (How many Slim's tabs remain open from that lost weekend, I wonder?) American Aquarium responded with Springsteen-ian grandeur, playing nearly sixty songs in two days and pivoting between early, booze-addled tunes and more settled-and-mellowed recent fare. During the last year, American Aquarium's members have survived home ownership, relationship trauma, solo tours, Hopscotch main-stage status and nearly 250 more shows scattered across two continents. This weekend, the band offers up the second edition of what we hope is a new tradition. —Grayson Haver Currin
