Walter Mitty and his Makeshift Orchestra, Chumped, Magic Mike

When: Mon., Oct. 27, 8:30 p.m. 2014

On tour from the West Coast, the ramshackle folk laments of Walter Mitty and His Makeshift Orchestra recall that lost Durham moment when Midtown Dickens and The Future Kings of Nowhere seemed to play every other day. With a reedy voice, simple drums and the occasional kazoo, the band lobs the observations of perpetual outsiders into a great, shrugging void. The quartet’s latest, Well Soon, balances that world-weariness with disarming pep. —Grayson Haver Currin
