Butch Walker & the Black Widows, Shovels & Rope 

When: Fri., Oct. 28, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $16-20

Georgia native Butch Walker has followed up the power pop promise of Marvelous 3 quite well. With a half-dozen solo albums to his name, Walker has spent the last decade churning out disc after disc of guitar pop anthems boasting hooks that practically compel you to sing along (even on first listen). He's worked and co-written with the likes of Weezer and Fall Out Boy. Walker has also produced a memoir, officially due out from William Morrow on Nov. 1, called Drinking With Strangers: Music Lessons From a Teenage Bullet Belt. Before tonight's show at Lincoln Theatre, he'll be promoting the book at UNC Bulls Head Bookshop in Chapel Hill, at 1 p.m.

Tonight's opener is Shovels & Rope, the terrific singer-songwriter duo of Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent. Although it's a bit of a curious pick given their gorgeous, ramshackle folk leanings, they will undoubtedly reward, regardless of the context. —Spencer Griffith
