Elena Skye & Boo Reiners, Moaners, Chip Robinson

When: Sat., Oct. 8, 9 p.m. 2011

Call it the triple bill of alt-country survivors. Dial this one back a decade or so, and you'd find Elena Skye and Boo Reiners at the helm of the fine New Jersey rocky-tonk outfit the Demolition String Band, the Moaners' Melissa Swingle fronting Chapel Hill twang wranglers Trailer Bride and Chip Robinson ruling the roost of Raleigh roots rock with the Backsliders. On this night, Skye and Reiners appear as a duo; that's also the format of The Moaners, which teams Swingle with drummer Laura King in a more garage-tinged venture. Robinson relocated to New York and then Austin, but he returns often to Raleigh and especially to Slim's, where, last month, he presided over the festival-closing Hopscotch Hangover party. —Peter Blackstock
