Southern Culture on the Skids, The Moaners 

When: Thu., June 24, 6 p.m. 2010
Price: Free

This double bill offers a sturdy blast of two-fisted fervor. The Moaners' first two albums purvey sultry, mud-caked blues boogie with the bite of a cobra and the roar of a bear. The sinewy duo coils behind drummer Laura King's insistent thwack and frontwoman Melissa Swingle's writhing guitar distortion, though the forthcoming album, Nocturnal, portends more moody finesse. Southern Culture on the Skids are a flaming semi without brakes steaming down a steep grade, rolling over a raucous country-billy blend as amusing as it is high-spirited. Few bring the party like guitarist Rick Miller and his throbbing rhythm section. This is the first date of Locally Grown, a new music series sponsored and presented by various Chapel Hill businesses and booked by Local 506. —Chris Parker
