Futurebirds, Lonnie Walker, Johnny Corndawg

When: Thu., Oct. 14, 9 p.m. 2010

Lonnie Walker and Futurebirds take similar routes to success. Targeting rock icons of yesteryear and stuffing their styles with the trappings of modern indie, the two feel as fixated on the past as they do lodged in the here and now. Raleigh's Lonnie Walker, for instance, cops the amphetamine-fueled garage style of Dylan's late '60s, often stripping it back to acoustic foundations before piling on warm '90s slacker distortion. Athens' Futurebirds hew closer to the vagabond folk-rock of Neil Young and Crazy Horse, adding jagged, freak-folk upheaval and heavy shoegaze tones to the twang of rambling narratives. Johnny Corndawg opens. —Jordan Lawrence
