Last Year's Men, Dex Romweber

When: Thu., Jan. 10, 10 p.m. 2013

More than two years have passed since the release of Sunny Down Snuff, the excellent 10-song debut burst from wiry and wry Chapel Hill garage upstarts Last Year's Men. In the interim, they've played a lot of shows, earned a modicum of buzz and, late last year, finally began recording Snuff's follow-up. But in the summer of 2011, they did offer a future tease with "In My Car," their side of a split with heroes The Reigning Sound. An anxious tune, "In My Car" showcased the expanding range of frontman Ben Carr, whose wavering worry of a voice split the difference between Gordon Gano and Jonathan Richman and revealed a band with more to offer than big hooks and short jams. Dex Romweber, himself an expert in the art of vocalizing paranoia and pressure, opens. —Grayson Currin
