PUNCH BROTHERS

THE CAROLINA THEATRE, DURHAM

THURSDAY, DEC. 17

The modern string quintet the Punch Brothers arrived early with an album-of-the-year contender in January's The Phosphorescent Blues. They employed banjo, mandolin, fiddle, acoustic guitar and bass to splendid new ends. The record explores themes of isolation in this digital age, from the intricate opener "Familiarity" to closer "Little Lights." The band's November EP, The Wireless, provided additional offerings from the Phosphorescent sessions, from the scintillating instrumental "The Hops of Guldenberg" to a reimagined version of Elliott Smith's "Clementine." On this round of winter dates, Punch Brothers perform with a single microphone, adding another dimension to the band's already engaging live show. Anaïs Mitchell opens. 8 p.m., $37$79,
