American Aquarium, Whiskey Gentry, John Moreland

When: Fri., Dec. 27, 9 p.m. 2013

Sure, they've still got plenty of twang, but Raleigh alt-country descendants American Aquarium have long spiked their brown-liquor sadness with rock 'n' roll liveliness. At their best, they manage muscular toe-tappers alongside quieter moments of mature realization. The steady-touring, seasoned bar vets have pegged a couple of their friends from the road as worthy openers. Oklahoma's John Moreland quietly released one of the year's most captivating Southern records with In The Throes; his intimate, weary confessionals reference his grandparents, religion, the Braves and Nina Simone. Speaking of Atlanta, The Whiskey Gentry head north with female-fronted bluegrass and honky-tonk hybrids. —Spencer Griffith
