Unknown Hinson, Hank Sinatra

When: Sat., May 12, 9 p.m. 2012

The line between parody and perfection is thin indeed for Charlotte's hillbilly undead honky-tonker Unknown Hinson. Though begun in the '90s as a Charlotte public access persona, the character Unknown Hinson has grown into much more, even enjoying a couple major-label releases in the mid '00s. Singing persuasively about a 20-something "Satan in a Thong" or recounting his many drunken, stupid or criminal acts ("I've Been There"), his wit's dry and earnestly tongue-in-cheek. But if he's never quite serious, his skills are no joke; tracks like "Torture Town" or "I Ain't Afraid of Your Husband" are so well-written and lovingly crafted, they're as much homage as satire. —Chris Parker
