Reese McHenry Sings with Spider Bags, Nathan Golub

When: Sat., July 15, 9 p.m. 2017

Just under a decade ago, Spider Bags and Dirty Little Heaters were the Triangle's kingpins of raw, gritty rock 'n' roll and labelmates on Durham's Churchkey Records. [Disclosure: INDY graphic and editorial designer Steve Oliva plays in Spider Bags.] The former's ramshackle, country-fried garage was dosed with punk and psych flavors, while Reese McHenry bolstered the latter's primal, bluesy bluster with a powerhouse wail. McHenry now combines forces with Spider Bags on the full-length collaboration Bad Girl. The record mixes a smattering of covers with originals by McHenry and Spider Bags front man Dan McGee, with McHenry's blistering vocal versatility at the forefront of every song. McHenry credits McGee's production for helping showcase her multifaceted pipes. "I never want to record vocals without him," she says. "He believes I have a way more amazing voice than I do, and it helps me get out of my own little zone." Guitarist Nathan Golub, who contributes pedal steel on Bad Girl, opens with American Primitive fingerpicking. —Spencer Griffith
