Dex Romweber, John Howie Jr. 

When: Sun., July 26, 6 p.m. 2015
Price: $5


Wrapping up a month-long residency at Chapel Hill's oldest bar, Dexter Romweber headlines an early gig with support from the ex-Two Dollar Pistol and current Rosewood Bluff frontman John Howie Jr. His affections for classic honky-tonk and Gram Parsons' country-rock afford him the willingness to revitalize retro sounds in his own style. Romweber reaches back even more, incorporating blues, rockabilly, surf and even some classical music into his pan-Americana mix. The former Flat Duo Jets iconoclast still delivers some of that band's urgency, but these days, it's tempered with veteran confidence and expanded scope. To see Romweber perform solo is to see a séance that summons America's pop-music past, from Tin Pan Alley and Sun Studio to So-Cal and bar rooms in between. With its low lighting and lower ceilings, The Cave has become something of a natural habitat for Romweber and his rewarding excavations.
