North Elementary, Corey Pallon, Ye Olde Shoppe, Stuart Edwards

When: Thu., Nov. 14, 9 p.m. 2013

In the studio, Atlanta's Corey Pallon is a one-man-band, a competent multi-instrumentalist capable of backing his bracing pop-rock with layers of drums, guitars and keyboards. Though he's played in touring troupes before, including the Americana-leaning Pistolero, the songs on his wonderful new EP, Eat My Gore, make you wish that Pallon could tie himself to a band and do this permanently. He's a chameleonic presence, able to shift from the thoughtful musings of Silver Jews to the sad romanticism of Sparklehorse to the electric charges of Guided By Voices with ease. He's an anchor in need of consistent surroundings. He'll be backed on a short tour by North Elementary, the flagship act for Potluck, the Chapel Hill label that releases his very good songs. North Elementary opens, too. For a few years and two albums, Stuart Edwards was one of two leaders in Old Bricks, a promising band making moody music with spectral blues and psychedelic textures. They've stalled, but he opens with a solo set. —Grayson Haver Currin
