Video: Future Islands do Letterman

Posted By on Tue, Mar 4, 2014 at 4:54 PM

Last night, Baltimore's Future Islands played The Late Show with David Letterman. The dramatic synth-pop trio is still claimed for the Triangle by many local musicians and fans, largely due to their origins in nearby Greenville, but also because of their continued personal and professional connections to North Carolina. While they have not called the state home in years, they remain a North Carolina success story and a staple in the local music press. And Wednesday, right on the heels of their network TV debut, they'll play a sold-out Haw River Ballroom date. Last night was surely exciting for the...

Video: JKutchma & The Five Fifths at Duke Gardens

Posted By on Thu, Jun 6, 2013 at 12:26 PM

Duke Performances' annual summer series, Music in the Gardens, kicked off Wednesday evening as JKutchma & The Five Fifths played a record-release party for Sundown, USA, which Kutchma released in two different versions (with the band and solo). Kutchma and company performed to a full crowd on the lawn of the gardens as, fittingly, the sun went down on a cool late-spring evening. They were joined by members of D-Town Brass and Prypyat as they ran through most of the new album and a few numbers of Kutchma's excellent previous release, Pastoral. Kutchma played a few numbers solo in the...

Mount Moriah, Bowerbirds Cat's Cradle Dec. 8, 2012 Saturday brought one of the more anticipated local performances in recent memory to the Cat's Cradle.

And headlining were the Bowerbirds, fresh off of a nine-month tour and returning to the Cradle for the first time since their CD release for The Clearing in March.

With no cost to get in and a reliable weekly beer special, the Thursday crowd at the Raleigh Irish pub varies in size, but is always willing to give unfamiliar acts a chance. This week, two Durham talents seized the opportunity to debut new performances that, while occasionally rough, overflowed with...

Live Review: Red Fang, Black Tusk, Lord Dying at Kings

Posted By on Fri, Nov 9, 2012 at 11:04 AM

Last night, Kings hosted a sold-out crowd for a touring trifecta that brought varying flavors of heaviness. Portland's Lord Dying opened with a tough blend of trash and doom, its twin guitar attack relentlessly crushing riffs alongside E. Olson's raspy bark. The band only eased up on the pummeling for guitar solo heroics and a cover of "Forget the Minions" by the now-defunct post-hardcore act Karp, which also makes an appearance on Lord Dying's tour-only EP—oddly enough, only 666 copies were pressed. Savannah's Black Tusk took the stage next in a uniform of beards and muscle tees that left...
