Gram Parsons Tribute

When: Fri., Sept. 20, 9 p.m. 2013

From all of Tres Chicas to parts of The Right Profile, The Backsliders and Six String Drag, some of the most notable names in the history of North Carolina music gather tonight to celebrate Gram Parsons, who died almost 40 years ago to the day in the California desert. The Triangle's heritage of alt-country and folk-rock owes massive debts to Parsons, of course; in only 26 years, he produced a body of work so compelling and intimate that many have spent their own careers and lives grappling with it. Three house bands and a few dozen singers will cover the sprawl of Parsons' catalog tonight, offering a fine and fitting testimonial from some of his definite stylistic descendants. —Grayson Haver Currin
