Eston & the Outs, The Shelles, John Howie Jr. (Back Room) 

When: Fri., Aug. 21, 9 p.m. 2015
Price: $6


In 2013, Eston Dickinson—a new arrival to the Triangle's rock scene—issued Knave of the Heart, a humble but exquisite set of pop songs that sounded like long-lost demos for Motown oldies. After building a band called The Outs and jumping on most any Triangle stage he could find, Dickinson has returned with the new AM Gold, a title whose atavistic implications belie the album's audacity. He adds Spoon-like swagger to the feedback-laced charger "As Easy as You Please" and Spiritualized-size choirs and strings to "Whatever Donna /A Notch for Nancy." He flirts with both bluegrass and T. Rex-style psychedelia on one track. Through it all, he has an easy way with melodies, singing them with an insouciance so charming it seems he rolled out of bed with a tune on his lips. With John Howie Jr. and The Shelles. 9 p.m., $6, 300 E. Main St., Carrboro, 919-967-9053, —Grayson Haver Currin
