Doctor Eugene Chadbourne Presents New Directions in Appalachian Music 

When: Mondays, 9 p.m. Continues through March 5 2015
Price: $5 suggested donation



He has been known to play an electrified, amplified rake. He pushes familiar tunes down unexpected improvisational paths. He enlists new ensembles not to reinforce his wild style but to stretch it: For all these reasons, it's tempting to call Eugene Chadbourne—a bona fide legend of the international experimental underground—a musical mad scientist, a description supported by his wild gray locks and wide eyes. But there is almost always intent and aim with Chadbourne, who positions his distortions of classic tunes both as poignant political critiques and ways to obliterate borders and genre expectations. In this month-long residency at Neptune's, he reprises his series of July appearances in the bar. Each Monday, he'll work with a different group of musicians to explore the back half of his own self-made great American songbook. 9 p.m., $5, 14 W. Martin St., Raleigh, 919-833-1091, —Grayson Haver Currin
