THE TOURIST, EMILY EASTERLY, J. SEGER
THE CAVE—Two songwriters on tour from their adopted home of New York, Emily Easterly and J. Seger favor the barebones set of a single guitar and the occasional piano. Easterly self-identifies as "what a redhead should sound like," and—accordingly—her confessional songs are sharp and unflinching. Seger is a rock classicist, referring to himself as a Rolling Stoner, listing the Kinks as an influence and covering Dylan's regretfully overlooked "Let Me Die in My Footsteps." Their pair becomes a triangle in Chapel Hill with the addition of The Tourist, the project of 20-year-old Cary songwriter Hunter MacDermut that's slowly expanded into a full band. In just a year, MacDermut has gone from a shy kid awkwardly plucking songs very much in situ to a developing songwriter with a promising debut and a new performer finally landing his own voice. The music begins around 10 p.m., tailing Hoppie's House of Poetry at 7:30 p.m. Expect to pass something that holds money. To hear tracks from these artists, see this week's Get Out.—Grayson Currin
