Jeff Hart

When: Wed., Oct. 12, 7 p.m. 2011

Jeff Hart has been on the Triangle scene since the late '80s, consistently plying tuneful, often folk-inflected rock with a bit of bluster. His early band, the Hanks, backed Arrogance's Robert Kirkland; later, Hart played with Chris Stamey in the '90s, and those two connections are reflective of his own musical tastes. His lithe, laid-back baritone recalls Rhett Miller, while sharing a similar appreciation of Big Star's power-pop and bar-band swagger. Rather than the country twang of the Old 97's, Hart favors a blend of jangling guitars informed by the Byrds and classic rock verve. He's just finished a Kickstarter campaign to fund his first studio album in 16 years. The free show starts at 7 p.m.—Chris Parker
