PHIL COOK & THE DEAD TONGUES

CAT'S CRADLE, CARRBORO

SATURDAY, JAN. 23

After long stints as a sideman in DeYarmond Edison and an anchoring third of Megafaun, Phil Cook emerged as a proper bandleader on last year's righteous Southland Mission. A beaming and earnest amalgamation of gospel and soul, bluegrass and blues, backwoods rock and back-porch sentiments, Southland Mission is a delight, a reflection both of Cook's enthusiasm for making music and gathering his pals to do just that. On stage, the presentation is every bit as emphatic and endearing. Cook's set will follow that of his sideman and collaborator Ryan Gustafson, who has recast his solo material under the name The Dead Tongues. Due later this year, The Dead Tongues' Montana delivers Gustafson's most exquisite material yet, as he tames country blues and folk fundamentals through 10 poignant songs that keenly capture the ups and downs of mortal perseverance. 9 p.m., $12–$15, 300 E. Main St., Carrboro, 919-967-9053, www.catscradle.com. —Grayson Haver Currin
