Justin Robinson & the Mary Annettes, Parker Smith & the Bandwidth, Bob Funck Band 

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

Though he departed the revivalist Carolina Chocolate Drops, Justin Robinson hasn't left his folklorist impulses behind. In the storytelling tradition of Southern music, Robinson's post-Drops work is rife with poignant allusions and compelling narrative. With the Mary Annettes, Robinson augments his writing with an idosyncratic synthesis of Southern vernacular music, merging elegant chamber-pop with his string-band roots, blues groan with hip-hop swagger. The group's excellent 2012 debut, Bones for Tinder, is eclectic only in terms of influence; Robinson's vision, no matter how disparate its inspirations, is singular. With Parker Smith & the Bandwith and the Bob Funck Band. —Bryan C Reed
