Water Liars, Wood Ear, Wowolfol 

When: Sun., Sept. 9, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $5

The W's have it on this bill boasting three fresh directions in Americana and country-rock. Durham's Wood Ear has the deepest roots in open rural textures, yet maintains a distinct low-key indie quality—like Tom Petty and Jeff Tweedy driving down some Piedmont back road (sometimes Beck's in this car, too, but only when he's depressed). Wood Ear's Steeple Vultures is an excellently sad EP. Headlining duo Water Liars' shambling sounds incorporate a good bit more grit and overdrive, resulting in a band that's as apt to jangle as to crunch through a wall of fuzzed guitar. Durham experimental country outfit Wowolfol, led by Hog and Horseback's Rich James, opens. —Corbie Hill
