Onward, Soldiers

Onward Soldiers, Maldora, Some Army 

When: Thu., Aug. 11, 10 p.m. 2011
Price: Free

The best Americana mixes resignation with tenacity, like a long-haul trucker fighting sleep. With two musical generations within the band, Onward, Soldiers almost can't help but inhabit that sweet spot. Songwriter Sean Thomas Gerard's youthful vinegar is tempered by the patient country-rock drumming of Kevin Rhodes (two decades his senior). There are moments of the long-suffering desperation of Tom Petty and Waylon Jennings. Gerard can't always maintain the accent, but the words hold their weight fine. For listeners looking for a more engaging show, this bill is it. With Maldora and Carrboro's very exciting Some Army. —Jordan Lawrence
