Birds & Arrows 

When: Sat., June 18, 5-8 p.m. 2011
Price: Free

From Midtown Dickens via Facebook: Unfortunately - ugh - we can't play the Saxapahaw gig that the Independent Weekly listed in Hearing Aid because The Mountain Goats asked us to tour with them... Instead, Birds & Arrows are taking the slot! It should be so lovely, and we can't wait to get there soon or to the Haw River Ballroom. Saxapahaw is lovely.

As Midtown Dickens preps its third album, and first for Trekky Records, the band's growth and maturation becomes even more apparent. Beginning as a casual duo that swapped found instruments and giggled as often as they sang, Catherine Edgerton and Kym Register still stuff their songs (and shows) to the gills with charm, honesty and arresting harmonies. These days, though, they match the tunes with arrangements and instrumentation that do them justice. Expanded to a four-piece, Midtown's delicate folk has never sounded more stunning than it does now, while the gigs maintain an endearing, off-the-cuff feel that suits Saxapahaw's rustic hay wagon stage and its blanket-strewn grassy knoll.
