The old guard meets Old Quarter: Cousins features Gary Poole and Eddie Taylor, longtime Raleigh rock 'n' rollers leading a new quartet. Last year, the quintet Old Quarter released Live Oak, a broken and busted EP of self-pity and self-reflection, gloriously cast as a next generation of cosmic country. They're well worth scouting. Chip Robinson, the lead Backslider who seems to be living onstage lately, opens. FRIDAY, FEB. 1, AT KINGS. $6/10 p.m.
