Lonnie Walker

When: Sat., Aug. 7, 6 p.m. 2010

For young touring bands, few Triangle shows are more restorative than a date at Saxapahaw's River Mill, a bit less than 20 miles west of Chapel Hill. In front of an attentive audience in an environment much different than the usual rock haunts, they test the intricacy of every song as daylight fades. Few young touring bands in the Triangle are more energizing than Lonnie Walker, an adventurous six-piece that finds intersections between the loquacious and angular indie rock of Pavement and Modest Mouse and the wiry twang of old country records. Frontman Brian Corum kicks and screams about growing up and looking for wisdom, while one of the sharpest supporting outfits in town adds requisite muscle and flair. Between legs of a big bicoastal tour, Lonnie Walker gets a comforting country welcome, and Saxapahaw gets a late summer jolt. —Grayson Currin
