Goner, Gray Young, JKutchma & the Five Fifths

When: Fri., March 30, 9 p.m. 2012

Just after openers Gray Young successfully raised $5,000 through its own Kickstarter campaign, longstanding Raleigh pop-rock act Goner launches its own online fundraising conquest. With two songs-in-progress from its upcoming fourth LP, Faking the Wisdom, streaming on Bandcamp and an $8,000 goal, Goner's grandest project to date involves both lush instrumentation (with guests on cello and tuba) and the band's first vinyl release. As for the preview songs, "River Town" injects a poetic, Michael Stipe-like imagery into a Darkness on the Edge of Town rock ballad, while the pensive title track matches chiming pianos and abstract synths with asymmetrical percussion. J Kutchma and the 5 Fifths open. The show is free to anyone who's already donated; otherwise, remember that this long-running trio of Raleigh pop advocates is making a new LP. —Corbie Hill
