Reese McHenry & The Fox, Chip Robinson, Magma Opus 

When: Sat., June 10, 9 p.m. 2017
Price: $5

Reese McHenry's voice conveys pain, struggle, triumph, and other emotions that can't be faked. McHenry made her mark in the aughts fronting the raw garage rock outfit Dirty Little Heaters with a brash, rafter-rattling howl that has earned comparisons to Janis Joplin and Ann Wilson of Heart. After a long hiatus due to health struggles, McHenry released a fine record as The Second Wife in 2015, a cheerfully self-deprecating moniker that echoes the no-nonsense sensibility of her music. Its nine songs were a cathartic response to the strokes, heart troubles, and surgeries that bedeviled her for more than a decade. Dirty Little Heaters began as a duo of McHenry on guitar and vocals and drummer Melissa Thomas before expanding to a power trio. Now the Chapel Hill-based singer-songwriter performs as a duo with drummer Stephen Gardner. In any configuration, her take-no-prisoners yowl will be front and center. Chip Robinson of the Backsliders opens. —David Klein
