Pox World Empire showcase with Nathan Oliver, Felix Obelix, Anna Bullard, Organos, Billy Sugarfix, Flute Flies

When: Sat., Sept. 18, 7:30 p.m. 2010

Part of a new series at The Pinhook that highlights local record labels, this concert is a catchy, quirky show of arms by Durham's Pox World Empire. The Flute Flies, a side project of Schooner's Reid Johnson and The Rosebuds' Ivan Howard, headline with a mix of grungy rock and blue-eyed pop similar to its singers' main gigs. Both Billy Sugarfix and Felix Obelix make good on offbeat lyrics and comfortably nasal tones. Sugarfix's songs take the form of sunny acoustic strum-alongs, though, while Felix Obelix creates a carnival of shiny organ and woodwind. Also on tap in this six-band bill are laid-back folk-pop act Organos and the arrestingly voiced Anna Bullard.—Jordan Lawrence
