BANDWAY, THE TROUSERS

KINGS, RALEIGH | FRIDAY, JAN. 1

Earlier this year, I interviewed Bandway to talk about Buddies, the duo's first new album in more than a dozen years. I swear that all they did the whole time was giggle. Lots of longstanding friends are like this—get them together, and soon they're firing in-jokes back and forth and until they cry from laughter. The difference with Bo Taylor and Brooks Carter is that their in-jokes provide the foundation for infectious, irrepressible comic cock-rock numbers. As Bandway, Taylor and Carter make already overblown and ludicrous '80s testosterone rock even sillier. It's the musical equivalent of Danny McBride's Kenny Powers—muscle-headed, loud and rip-roaringly funny in its accuracy. Years can pass between Bandway shows, so catch this if you can. For this rare date, Bandway welcomes The Trousers, another sterling Raleigh act that also appears onstage with marked infrequency. 9:30 p.m., $10, 14 W. Martin St., Raleigh, 919-833-1091, www.kingsbarcade.com. —Corbie Hill
