Yarn, Dune Dogs 

When: Sat., Jan. 28, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $10-12

Prolific songwriter Blake Christiana fronts Yarn, a Brooklyn six-piece whose twang fends off the hipster notions the borough's name conjures for some. Americana stars Tony Trischka, Casey Driessen, Edie Brickell and our own Caitlin Cary served to validate the city slickers' legitimacy by recording with the band on its sophomore effort. Yarn draws apt comparisons to Gram Parsons by infusing his brand of country rock with strains of bluegrass and blues, then executing such varied arrangements with top-notch instrumental chops. Raleigh sextet the Dune Dogs open, mixing a hefty helping of honky-tonk and Southern rock classics with an occasional original that drinks from the same fountains. —Spencer Griffith
