Two pages into the latest (and last?) Spin, there's a two-page Gap spread featuring North Carolina's Avett Brothers—and, yes, a new cut of corduroys. Who'd have thought alternating irreverent and melodramatic pop-folk would make such a splash? These unlikely stars now have the name recognition to appear in high-profile ad campaigns; with this stature comes a long shadow.

Yet acts such as Chapel Hill's Mipso Trio, while undeniably existing in the Avett tradition, aren't imitators. Rather, this outfit dials down the recklessness, replacing it with a clean-cut exuberance, like Buddy Holly with a mandolin. There's soul aplenty here, owing to the band's mixed background in jazz and bluegrass, but there's also an endearing "gee, golly" sincerity. Listening to Mipso's debut LP Long, Long Gone, though, one thinks less about where this all came from than of what might come next. Morning Brigade opens the last show of this summer's free Locally Grown series at 7 p.m. on the Wallace parking deck at 150 East Rosemary St. —Corbie Hill
