Joe Pug & the Hundred Mile Band, Vandaveer

When: Sat., Oct. 9, 9:30 p.m. 2010

There are more musically adventurous songs in the catalog of former UNC-Chapel Hill student Joe Pug—"Speak Plainly, Diana" (which Pug has recorded twice), for instance, executes a series of sharp turns, leaving hooks instead of skid marks in its wake. But if there's one work that's cemented his reputation as a songwriter to watch and justified the Steve Earle comparisons—and supporting tour dates—it's "Bury Me Far (From My Uniform)." Sounding waist-deep in the muddy and fueled by Nebraska, Pug sings, "I'm not a cause, not a Christ, not a ransom/ I'm not a reason, I'm not a debate." It's a powerful indictment and an arrival announcement, too. —Rick Cornell
