Shirlette Ammons, (J)Rowdy and the Nightshift, Will Wildfire, Nance 

When: Sat., Aug. 6, 9 p.m. 2016
Price: $7-$10



In February, Durham's Shirlette Ammons released Language Barrier, an ambitious LP that finds the rapper, singer, and bassist pulling on threads of folk, pop, and punk to bolster her own hip-hop and soul background. Ammons enlisted a handful of interesting guests—Meshell Ndegeocello, Amy Ray, and fellow Durhamites Heather McEntire, Amelia Meath, and M.C. Taylor—to make her vision possible. There are times when Ammons feels like a guest on her own record as others take the lead on vocals, but her strong and thoughtful writing is consistent throughout. Her sharp lines and rhymes will only land harder when she takes the stage with (J)Rowdy & the NightShift, Will Wildfire, and Nance. —Allison Hussey
