In CD release parties

For the first time, Carrboro hotspot Orange County Social Club (OCSC) is hosting a live music event. Local musicians Ron Liberti (The Ghost of Rock) and Groves Willer (Shark Quest, Evil Weiner) started their own record label, Hypno-Vista Records, which has so far released a wonderful EP by duo Work Clothes as well as a single by TGOR, which features graphic artist Liberti's memorable sleeve art. Besides being a Hypno-Vista Records showcase, the event celebrates the release of a disc by longtime local alternative legends Mind Sirens, whose tunes have been described by a local rock pundit as "mind-blowingly great in a weird, quavery Southern-psych-gothic kind of way." Since the late '80s, vocalist/visionary Brian Butler has cut a wide path (overgrown and at times hard to follow, but a path nonetheless) through the local music scene. The album, a cool artifact of the Chapel Hill indie-rock scene, features the group's early, hard-to-find singles (on Jettison Records) along with some previously unreleased recordings. This Sunday, July 28, starting at 5 p.m., TGOR, Cantwell, Gomez and Jordan, Work Clothes (pictured above) and Mind Sirens will set up in the OCSC parking lot (behind the club) and perform for your listening pleasure. Call 933-0669 for details. --Angie Carlson
