Daniel Bachman, Ezekiel Graves, Tashi Dorji 

When: Fri., Nov. 15, 9:30 p.m. 2013
Price: $6-8
Ever feel like the guitar is over, like you know every way in which its strings can be worked and everything they can render? Try this bill. Opener Tashi Dorji comes from Asheville, though he actually moved to the mountain town from Bhutan, a small landlocked country that sits at the slopes of the Himalayas. Dorji improvises with a prepared acoustic guitar, meaning that the usual plucks and picks take on phantasmagorical characteristics, as though ghosts emanate from his strings. His work seems to move along a narrative spine, making even his most recondite sounds part of a larger and more relatable sequence. He's released three cassettes of alternately meditative and agitated music this year, all excellent. Durham's Ezekiel Graves just issued Chthonic Journey, a set of distant electric guitar hymns that crackle and cackle like the early works of Loren Connors. Daniel Bachman—a young picker dialed into bluegrass and ragas alike—headlines. —Grayson Haver Currin
