Whatever Brains, Goner, Wool 

When: Fri., Dec. 6, 7:30 p.m. 2013
Might Let Feedback Ring—a monthly free show at Raleigh's Legends—be the city's next great, permanent First Friday addition? Here's hoping. The talent for this second regular installment, after all, is an exceptional blend of newcomers, veterans and the path between the two. The new and promising Wool crafts evocative indie rock from the saturation of shoegaze guitars and the diffident vocals of New Zealand's hugely influential Dunedin sound; imagine Real Estate turning that layer of fuzz into blankets. Diffidence isn't something that Goner—three grown men with full-time jobs and mortgages and kids—doesn't entertain; their piano-led rock seems eternally in search of a little salvation and a very big anthem, both of which they deliver en masse on the new Faking the Wisdom. Whatever Brains headline. During each of the last three years, they've managed to release one of the state's best records, largely because of their stylistic restlessness and adventurousness. An early show in a gay dance club sounds like their ideal scenario for mischief. —Grayson Haver Currin
