Mac McCaughan and The Non-Believers, Blackball

When: Fri., Dec. 11, 9 p.m. 2015

Mac McCaughan has led the same rock band, Superchunk, for nearly three decades, and the quartet has maintained a steadfast approach to angled hooks and unapologetic attitude for much of that run. Still, McCaughan—who has dabbled with lo-fi recording and hi-fi studios, free jazz and film scores, synthesizers and acoustic guitars—has never been one for sitting still. As the co-founder of Merge Records and an enthusiastic collaborator, he seems to be on the perennial prowl for new enthusiasm and energy, which explains in part why he recruited the great Flesh Wounds to serve as “The Non-Believers,” the live backing band for his solo LP from earlier this year. They’ll offer two sets after Blackball, a rad new live riot from Raleigh and Richmond, opens, earning its McCaughan imprimatur. —Grayson Haver Currin
