Wesley Wolfe, Ben Davis & the Jetts, Ye Olde Shoppe 

When: Sun., March 31, 5 p.m. 2013
Price: Free

Carrboro singer-songwriter Wesley Wolfe came quickly from the gates, releasing two very good albums of mildly misanthropic yet somehow affable folk-rock in less than 18 months. Since September 2011's Cynics Need Love Too, however, his attention has largely shifted to his Tangible Formats label and his newfound vocation of individually lathe-cut records. But he's purportedly working on new material, and this early-evening showcase presented by WXYC 89.3 FM should give him a chance to try some of it. Ben Davis & the Jetts open with their urgent and irascible songs, which are heavy enough to be shaped like post-rock but charged and concise enough to be sized like post-punk. Also, Ye Olde Shoppe. —Grayson Currin
