Lonni Walker, Mount Moriah

When: Wed., June 9, 6:30 p.m. 2010

The combination of Durham's Mount Moriah and Raleigh's Lonnie Walker proclaims the brutal insufficiency of describing a band as rock-oriented with a hint of country. Indeed, Mount Moriah's two-guitar ache is spare and arid, guitar tones floating thick and slow like the smell of bog and honeysuckle in humid Southern air. Heather McEntire, also of Bellafea, leads the band, her voice a sharp blade with a soft handle. Lonnie Walker, however, revolts against space, cramming words into verses, catchiness into choruses and an array of sound into every cranny their addictive, energetic songs afford. A perfect local bill. —Grayson Currin
