When Red Collar released its full-length debut, Pilgrim, in 2009, the Durham quartet was at the top of the local scene. In fact, they began to look like a probable candidate for big-league touring. But, as it does, life got in the way, forcing the band to hurdle births, marriages, injuries, careers and other obligations to keep it going. They didn't quit, though. For a band whose Springsteen-scope post-punk songs are born of struggle and triumph, life imitates art. Later this year, Red Collar will release Welcome Home, its earnest-as-ever sophomore album. Local shows are rarer now, so don't miss out. With the soused and spectacular Spider Bags and bar-band exemplar Rat Jackson. —Bryan C. Reed
