The Old Ceremony, Shark Quest, Curtis Eller

When: Fri., Sept. 13, 8:30 p.m. 2013

This three-part bill offers a snapshot of North Carolina's musical past, present and future. The Old Ceremony, after all, is a microcosm of that continuum, with players who've been working area rooms for decades offering songs that pair youthful verve and aged insight. Shark Quest doesn't play much these days, but their refined instrumental pieces hold up well nearly a decade after they released their last LP. Without words, their guitars, drums, banjos and all manner of assorted instruments offer descriptions of surreal scenes and curious objects, painting colorful portraits with quixotic sounds. Opener Curtis Eller is relatively new to the area, but he's been brandishing his mix of old-time tall tales and circus-performer zeal for years. Every time, though, he delivers these songs like it's the first time. —Grayson Currin
