Bowerbirds, Mount Moriah 

When: Sun., June 5, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $8-12

Formed in the Carolina woods when guitarist and lead vocalist Phil Moore tracked birds for the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, the Bowerbirds should be awarded honorary residence in Walden Pond. Moore and Beth Tacular (accordion, keys, drums, vocals)—along with a rotating cast of sidemen—strum about natural resources and heartbreak with equal passion, and they often write these songs from their wooded Pittsboro outpost. Despite the old-worldliness of their string-based folk, the Birds are hardly disconnected: Moore's day job now consists of co-designing websites with Tacular, and this gig sees the debut of new material in their first show since November and before they open for Arcade Fire in Virginia. With Mount Moriah. —Marissa Muller
