Trekky Records Showcase 

When: Thu., Dec. 15, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $6-8

Two years ago, on the quaint patio of the Carrboro bar Milltown, the artists who comprise part of the Trekky Records collective gathered for a special performance. It hadn't been very well publicized, so it wasn't packed. Still, something pretty magical happened that night: A handful of artists who had become a family got a chance to celebrate. Supporting players ordinarily denied the spotlight could shine in lead roles. It ended with a triumphant sing-along that felt like a statement of vitality; Trekky was here to stay.

The label turns 10 this year, another anniversary to be marked by a night of covers and one-off collaborations. This time the stakes are a bit higher—or at least the stage is. This ArtsCenter event stands in for Trekky's traditional Christmas at the Cradle, a local music celebration with a mostly flawless six-year history. The label's profile has also grown considerably in the last two years, with indie folk orchestra Lost in the Trees attaining national renown thanks to a 2010 reissue of their sophomore LP on big indie Anti-. Yes, the stage is larger now, but with help from members of local greats Hammer No More the Fingers and Megafaun, Trekky seems poised for another magical night. —Jordan Lawrence
