Marianne Taylor Open House with Superlove Highway, Michael Rank & Stag, John Howie Jr

When: Sat., July 20, 8 p.m. 2013

For the better part of three years, Southland Ballroom—a versatile venue that sits one block east of Raleigh's Glenwood South strip—has specialized in electronica and jam bands, with the occasional metal bill or cover act thrown into the mix of raves and zone-outs. That will change in the coming months with the addition of Marianne Taylor, the Triangle's empress of Americana. Taylor has crawled between several clubs in town, booking bluegrass and folk and alt-country in whatever venue best suited her. After the Berkeley Cafe shut down its dominant music room last month, she migrated to Southland, where she'll start tonight with a three-band open house. John Howie Jr. and Michael Rank, both rock 'n' roll veterans gone country to varying degrees, bring their bands. Superlove Highway—a fresh Raleigh quartet that makes ardent Southern rock ostensibly inspired by alternative survivors of the late '90s and Ryan Adams—headline and release their new EP with this set. If you haven't yet, it's time to get familiar with Southland. —Grayson Currin
