Get Out

Music worth leaving the house for


Friday, September 2
Josh Lederman y Los Diablos
The Cave

That Los Diablos singer/guitarist Josh Lederman hails from Boston comes as no surprise--there's a strong flavor of Irish folk and alcoholism in the staggering sonics of these self-styled Kings of Irish-Jewish Folk-Punk. A waltzing Pogues-ish quality infuses their music, which also entertains hints of zydeco and twangy country-folk. $6/10 p.m. --CP

Saturday, September 3
Mic Harrison
Latta House

Mic Harrison made exemplary roots-pop as stage-left guitarist with the V-roys, Southern-guy power pop as leader of the short-lived Faults, and crunchy arena pop as a late-inning member of Superdrag. On last year's Pallbearer's Shoes, Harrison's second solo release, he merged those three sounds into something that everybody should have heard. Few, of course, did. $5/6 p.m. --RC

Chatham County Line, Mic Harrison
Lincoln Theatre

Dave Wilson's songs come from another time and place, stories based on fleshed-out fragments of memories lived vicariously on his father's knee. Those remembrances--trains winding through Louisiana, abandoned country roads and the real power of the gospel--are the basis for Wilson's different-kind-of-traditional bluegrass quartet, Chatham County Line. Their Route 23 testifies to misanthropic progress rolling back the pride and power of the people, written by Wilson, whose father ran a hardware store in Charlotte that succumbed to big-box suppliers quick to settle in the city. Mic Harrison opens. For more on him, see above. $8/10 p.m. --GC

Wrinkle Neck Mules
Saxapahaw rivermill

The Mules are a familiar group to the Triangle music lover, a Virginia-based roots band working the plow through crops of country and bluegrass. What a fine end of summer thing to do: sit by the Haw River early on a Saturday evening and listen to some pickers and grinners. Sounds downright blissful. Free/6 p.m. --CT

Tuesday, September 6
Dynamite Club, In the Year of the Pig, Rockets and Mortar

Southeast Asia by way of Brooklyn, the D Club packs a whirlwind of sounds, screeching and silliness into a two-player package. Dramatic acts of audacity (kung fu fighting and wrestling) offset their punchy guitar and drum bursts. In the Year of the Pig--a Chapel Hill duo, of Bear and Fox--dig deep into the mire, doing the bass-throb hunch and scowling all the while. And, dig it, they channel morbidity through cuddly animal imagery. $5/10 p.m. --CT

Sarah Borges
The Pour House

She bucks country like a mustang with a wild streak, blending the raw whiskey-dipped passion of Lone Justice's Maria McKee with a bruised, rustic amble that would make Lucinda proud. Her debut, Silver City, is best when it bears its blues-rock teeth, as on the down-on-the-luck "On the Corner," and she offers glimpses of great talent. $10/8 p.m. --CP

Wednesday, September 7

Police Chief Brody's dreams are a fevered hum of dorsal fins and choppy swells. Amity Island's ringed in dark vibrant storm clouds, but it will not rain. Adrift on his Sunfish, Brody feels like a character in Eliot's "Wasteland." Twilighter churns like the sea, skirting and circling pop melodies tauntingly, ever moving, its jagged guitar taking chunks out of the rhythmic pulse. Dark and winding, its melodies pulling like undertow, Twilighter never sleeps nor gives up the hunt. Free/10 p.m. --CP
