The Grand Shell Game, Annabelle's Curse, Gabriel David (Back Room)

When: Sat., June 11, 8 p.m. 2016

Man on a Wire, the smart six-song debut from Carrboro sextet Grand Shell Game, starts from a bedrock of jangling roots rock and ponderous poetry. The songs then spin outward, taking cues from The Beatles or Lambchop, Neutral Milk Hotel or Ween in turn. Though all interesting, some of these tunes are breathless, fetching, and wild, while others turn inward for abiding reflection. Think Bombadil operating beneath a veneer of cool, The Head & The Heart with less to lose, or one of the year’s most promising local starts. —Grayson Haver Currin
