Minus 5, Conjure Bearden: Long Ago Faces




THE POUR HOUSE--Attention, America, specifically the greater Triangle area: Two of the greatest rock bands on the planet will be at Raleigh's Pour House tonight. The Minus 5, led by Scott McCaughey, have officially perfected the brand of so-brainy-it's-quirky pop-rock that McCaughey invented as a Young Fresh Fellow, while the Walter Salas-Humara-guided Silos have done the same for groove-heavy roots rock. Oh, and star-studded is an accurate description of the Minus 5 lineup, which sports the likes of Peter Buck and gifted Model Rocket John Ramberg. Doors at
7 p.m., music starts at 8. Tickets are $12 in advance
and $15 at the door. --Rick Cornell
