Eugene Chadbourne, D Charles Speer & the Helix, Shadow World Duo

When: Wed., July 20, 9:30 p.m. 2011

A curator after my own heart, Ben Clack introduced his new Triangle talent initiative, New Weird South, with the following sentences: "I basically want to bring more unusual acts to Raleigh and to get people excited about things beyond just the standard rock shows. Ideally, I'd like to find ways to bring Arthur Doyle and other free jazz heroes around, too." Clack's second show in his worthy conquest pairs North Carolina's legendary genre and instrument builder, the inimitable Eugene Chadbourne, with another set of traveling country weirdos, D. Charles Speer and the Double Helix. Leaving the Commonwealth, the Helix's new LP via Thrill Jockey Records, cuts an alternately smart-ass, sad-eyed and surreal path through barnstorming country music. It's one of my favorite LPs of 2011, just as Clack's new program is one of my favorite local arts ideas of the year. With Shadow World Duo. —Grayson Currin
