Evil Wiener Roast 

When: Sun., July 4, 5 p.m. 2010

Is there a more American combination than grilled meats and parking lot parties, local curiosities and neighborhood gatherings? Don't forget tradition. Undoubtedly, The Cave's Independence Day soirée (the ninth starring the house band Evil Wiener) will deliver on all counts, beginning with an early-evening weenie roast in the basement bar's back parking lot and followed by a rare musical performance from the long-running and perennially novel Chapel Hill outfit. In the years since Evil Wiener's proper heyday, leader Billy Sugarfix has busied himself with a songwriter-for-hire business and the recording of last year's solo debut, Summer Tempests. But the keen eye for detail and knack for transforming humdrum happenstance into poetic grist are skills he honed with Evil Wiener. Contrasting the introspective bittersweet of Sugarfix's solo set, these tunes are usually funny and often touching odes to every day occurrences—like renting videos or playing in marching bands. America, bless Evil Wiener. —Bryan Reed
