The Loners
  • The Loners

SLIM'S—The Loners are one of maybe five essential rock 'n' roll bands in this state, and their story is as potent as their two-piece, soul-soaked garage sauce. Eddie Taylor was an admitted childhood scoundrel who landed in North Carolina via the band Big Joe in the mid-'90s. The band imploded and Taylor laid a bit low before meeting Chris Jones, a vinyl enthusiast and former member of Vanilla Trainwreck and The Cherry Valence, in a bookshop. They practiced rock, conquered the town and quit one another in 2003, leaving a void that several Capital City kindred spirits knew they could never fill. They're back now, and—if the last stand at their birthplace, Kings, was a funeral—they were the funeral pyre, all light and sound and electricity and essence. The Trousers open at 10 p.m. Bring $3 and thanks. —Grayson Currin

DUKE WEST CAMPUS—Known as one of the most brilliant modern dance companies, HSDC is here for the American Dance Festival. They have worked with U.S. and international choreographers alike, engaging the audience in seductive and timeless shows. Petite Mort by Jiri Kylian, Baker's Dozen by Twyla Tharp, Palladio by Jim Vincent, Kiss by Susan Marshall and Lickety-Split by Alejandro Cerrudo are part of the performance in Page Auditorium Thursday through Saturday. Visit for more information. —Madison Owen
