Zen Frisbee

When: Fri., July 22 2011

Local legends Zen Frisbee never enjoyed much fame outside the area, but their ragged rock somehow epitomized the slack, barely employable character of Chapel Hill's bar scene. (Hell, maybe it's just them.) Guitarist brothers Laird and Kevin Dixon trade guitar licks weaving subtle, pliant texture with prickly but infectious hooks. Brian Walker's vocals swagger over the top in a staggering croon that screams, "I'm not as think as you drunk I am." Backed by a rotating rhythm section over the years, they possess a loose, carefree spirit that threatens to shatter into a hundred pieces live, delighting the audience with death-defying derring-do like a tottering tightrope walker. They play sets at 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. —Chris Parker
