My Morning Jacket, Lucius 

When: Tue., July 28, 7 p.m. 2015
Price: $29.50-$45



During "Tropics (Erase Traces)," the next-to-last beauty from My Morning Jacket's excellent new The Waterfall, an aggressive Jim James steps over a stentorian solo and into the final verse. "Tastes change/frame by frame," he barks. "Erase traces/Of the past." That seemingly tossed-off rhyme serves as a mission statement for My Morning Jacket, a band that's been continually discontent during its 16-year career. They've howled through ragged guitar rock and floated through cerebral soul, drifted through folk ballads and lifted to psychedelic heights. In the process, they've become one of America's best bands, as full of ideas and risks in the studio as they are energy and rewards on the stage. They'll indulge something of a two-night stand in the Triangle. First, they'll stop by the Carolina Theatre to screen and talk about the lysergic Jim Henson curio The Dark Crystal for the Film:Acoustic series. Maybe they'll even offer some unplugged songs before powering up to test downtown Raleigh's decibel limits at Red Hat Amphitheater Tuesday. Tough break if you have to choose, as My Morning Jacket is as captivating with a whisper as they are with a roar.
