Goner (release party), Wood Ear, Beloved Binge 

When: Sat., June 29, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $5-7

This gig celebrates the release of Faking the Wisdom, Goner's fourth album. An exercise in quality over quantity, Goner has continued to log marked improvement with each successive album. With contributions from of a gang of friends (including members of Gray Young, The Tourist, the Kickin' Grass Band and others), Faking the Wisdom is a fuller, more layered effort. But Goner's spotlight still shines on frontman Scott Phillips, whose everyman vocals suggest Michael Stipe or Craig Finn and whose writing makes ordinary struggles feel epic. Beloved Binge and Wood Ear, both from Durham, share the bill.—Bryan C Reed
