Lonnie Walker, Wylie Hunter & the Cazadores 

When: Thu., Aug. 25, 10 p.m. 2011
Price: Free

Maybe you can go home again: When Chris Tamplin left his post as the chief booking agent at Raleigh's Tir na nOg late last year to lead Durham's Motorco, the timing felt right. Kings had returned to Raleigh, and with Casbah and Motorco fresh in the Bull City, the town seemed ready for a consistent spate of bands. But Motorco struggled, and Kings left room for a few more rock shows in Raleigh. So, less than a year after leaving, Tamplin has returned to his old post at Tir na nOg and, once again, to his routine of booking excellent free Thursday night bills. Though they've still yet to release their long-in-the-making second album, Lonnie Walker remains one of the state's best bands, with wiry frontman Brian Corum shouting epithets and ideas over an alternately shambling and sharp folk-rock roll. Chapel Hill's Wylie Hunter & the Cazadores open. —Grayson Currin
