Mipso, Plume Giant, David Childers & the Overmountain Men 

When: Sat., Nov. 3, 8:30 p.m. 2012
Price: $10

Mipso's Buddy Holly-like take on the Avett Brothers' style makes for feel-good, catchy tunes. The quartet (they recently dropped the Trio tag) are also emotionally versatile enough to tackle tricky, unpleasant topics. Consider "Dying Daze," mandolin player Jacob Sharp's ode to his mother. She died before getting to see her son pack out the Cradle or play N.C. State's homecoming, which the UNC group did on October 28. In the song, Sharp speaks openly and tenderly about losing her, before closing with a brief interpolation of "Amazing Grace." The body of the song is far stronger than its familiar conclusion, revealing a pack of poignant songwriters. Plume Giant and David Childers & the Overmountain Men join the bill. —Corbie Hill
