Reality Center Benefit with David Wimbish & the Collection, Pinkerton Raid, Tommy Goldsmith 

When: Sat., Aug. 18, 2 p.m. 2012
Price: $5

This benefit for a Christian outreach ministry in Durham geared toward at-risk youths and individuals with cognitive impairments comes graced by shades of indie rock both inviting and accessible. Greensboro's David Wimbish and his Collective trade in delicate, banjo-bedecked folk orchestrations that suggest Sufjan Stevens in their melodic splendor. Their religiously inspired narratives are faith-affirming and poetic, lifted by arresting crescendos and passionate bravado. The ambling pop-rock of The Pinkerton Raid makes a winning complement, plodding comfortably with bouncing piano chords and roughshod bar-rock harmonies. More content to belt than wheeze, they have a sound that is charming, if a tad innocuous. Tommy Goldsmith opens. —Jordan Lawrence
