Mipso, David Childers & the Overmountain Men

When: Fri., Jan. 11, 9 p.m. 2013

David Childers once led the rambunctious country act The Modern Don Juans, while his collaborator, Bob Crawford, earns the most notice as the upright bass thumper in the wild-eyed Avett Brothers. In the Overmountain Men, though, both settle into well-developed folk molds, sharing stories of the down and out over austere arrangements that occasionally seek the frenzy of those other acts. Speaking of the Avetts, Chapel Hill's Mipso has been hidebound to comparisons to the Concord group since the start, but their graceful little numbers lilt where the Avetts barrel, smile where the Avetts smirk. These are pop songs, pleasantly dressed in bluegrass garments. —Grayson Currin
