Wigg Report, Joy In Red

When: Fri., Aug. 5, 10 p.m. 2011

"I love playing the Cave," says Joy In Red's Matthew Yearout. "When I get on that stage, I think of all the bands that have come and gone, some still around, who have shared that one moment, even if they lack any sonic similarities with one another, and I can't help but feel a sense of pride." Joy in Red, a trio of Durhamites best known for laying banjo rolls over heavy rock rhythms, have been off the radar for most of the summer (thanks to two members' marriage ceremonies), but are gearing up for Fall shows and a brand new record. In a happy bit of symmetry, they'll be sharing the bill with another trio of Bull Citizens who also have a new album on the horizon: The Wigg Report, who are busy finalizing Bicycle Pop. Their anti-folk anthems and belligerent pop force a smile from the most cynical listeners. Donations accepted. —Ashley Melzer
