The Moaners, Raised By Wolves 

When: Thu., April 29, 10 p.m. 2010
Price: Free

You need look no further than Chatham County duo The Moaners to see the power of two. Two women with two instruments churn out distortion-heavy indie blues that barrels through chicanery to punch you right in the gut. Given how little they play these parts, it's a wonder that they're the ones called The Moaners and not their fans. "We try not to play locally too often to keep the local crowd interested," says drummer Laura King. When it comes to their gig at Tir Na Nog for WKNC's Local Beer Local Band series, she's fully supportive of the concept, even if she's not very familiar with the scene. "I think it's great when any community dedicates time and support for local music."

For this night, the definition of "locals" will be loose. Raised By Wolves, a Charlotte-based band that's soon drawing to a close because lead singer/songwriter CT Stephenson is making the jump to Nashville, join The Moaners. He promises to bring big energy to this set though, if only to right the record from the last set they played at such a local's night. "The last time we played here, I had the flu, and out of exhaustion I simply lost my balance and fell on me arse," Stephenson admits, "I just hope that doesn't happen again." —Ashley Melzer
