Lonnie Walker, Old Quarter
When Art Lord and the Self Portraits, the high-concept precursor of the more dance-driven Future Islands, reunited for one show in February, they asked an old East Carolina University pal to open. Since college in Greenville, Brian Corum had pushed his shuffle-and-sprint mix of indie rock and alt-country, Lonnie Walker, to ecstatic heights, with his loquacious lyrics wrapped around the increasingly tight and tense parts of his enthused backing band. Lonnie Walker has been conspicuously absent from area stages for more than six months, so Corum opened solo, relocating the same frazzled-nerve verve that epitomized Lonnie Walker's rapturous early sets. They finally return to the stage here, hopefully with the same lease of lucid energy Corum broadcast two months ago. Old Quarter lives up to the Townes Van Zandt reference of its name, pouring bracing pints of hurt from dusty bottles of country and rock. Also, Spooky Woods. —Grayson Currin
