Justin Robinson & the Mary Annettes 

When: Fri., Aug. 19, 7-9 p.m. 2011
Price: Free

Ex-Carolina Chocolate Drop Justin Robinson's new quartet fuses traditional and modern styles that don't always share iPod space. Robinson—who often performs in cape and topknot like some autoharp-wielding samurai—harmonizes hauntingly with violist Sally Millikin and violinist Kyra Moore on distinctive Southern Gothic ballads. Yet Josh Stohl's hybrid acoustic/electric drum kit injects delicious neo-soul and trip-hop backbeats. It takes a talented group to mix early 20th-century folk-tinged popular music with the more urban pop that closed the 1990s—to bridge the gap between the Carter Family and Erykah Badu, so to speak. Bynum's General Store is just the purposefully anachronistic venue for this remarkable act. —Corbie Hill
