Spencer Sholes, John Howie Jr & the Rosewood Bluff, The Darnell Woodies, Stratocruiser 

When: Fri., May 7, 10 p.m. 2010
Price: $7

The Triad's Matt Smith got his start playing in punk bands before forming the Johnsons in the mid '90s. That group's mix of roots rock and Texas singing-songwriting gone Piedmont made a perfect match with those alt-country times. For Act 3 of his music career, Smith now leads the Winston-Salem-based Darnell Woodies, who play stringband music with punkish pluck; think The Pogues having a go at "Raleigh and Spencer." John Howie Jr. & the Rosewood Bluff bring the sounds of Bakersfield and of the first wave of California country rock to the bill, while Stratocruiser provides the big-guitar, big-voice melodic rock. —Rick Cornell
