Five songs, dude: Valient Thorr hits the decade mark

Posted By on Fri, Apr 29, 2011 at 12:57 PM

It’s been 10 years since Valient Thorr, the bearded, denim-vested troupe of hard rock avengers, landed in the Triangle from Venus with their twin-axe attack and mythical backstory. And as the rowdy rock band celebrates its decennial, we celebrate the traits that have kept the band’s hordes of die-hard Thorriors fervent and growing since 2001. Through some 10 members and five albums—from 2003’s self-released debut, Stranded On Earth, to last year’s, Stranger—Valient Thorr has been a model of consistency. Witness these five model Thorr songs, culled from dozens of equally worthy candidates. Valient Thorr plays Kings Saturday, April 30, with...

Tonight: Andrew Weathers' final N.C. stand

Posted By on Thu, Apr 28, 2011 at 4:31 PM

Drew ValentiAndrew Weathers We’re losing a good one: Greensboro’s Andrew Weathers, an avant-garde composer whose evolution can be traced from his solo guitar-via-laptop work as Pacific Before Tiger to the more recent classical drone-folk of the ensemble that takes his name, is finishing at University of North Carolina-Greensboro and summarily moving to California. Good for him, but otherwise dammit. So if he absolutely has to leave us, at least seeing him complete his degree in Music Composition should be a memorable sendoff. His senior recital happens at 9 p.m. tonight at Greensboro’s CFBG. He will be joined by, for this...

The Reservoir's run ends this weekend

Posted By on Wed, Apr 27, 2011 at 11:54 AM

Jeremy M. LangeColossus plays one of the last shows at the Reservoir tonightThere is a room on the border of downtown Chapel Hill and downtown Carrboro. It's on the side of a car wash, and it has no large windows, just two dark metal doors that open up onto a side street that's appropriately named Brewer Lane. For more than six years this room has played host to the Reservoir, an anything goes mix of rock club and corner bar that's loud, lively and cheap. But after Friday, this room will no longer be the bar's home. In response to...

Tonight: Tir na nOg hosts 10-band tornado benefit

Posted By on Tue, Apr 26, 2011 at 12:19 PM

Jeremy M. LangeCarpenter Ryan Carlson sits underneath a tree that landed on his roof in the Oakwood neighborhood of Raleigh. A record 92 tornadoes tore through North Carolina on April 16. Raleigh is still reeling from the tornado that cut a terrifying line across five counties, tearing into houses and yards and lives. It may still be a hot clip to the Weather Channel, but here the tragedy is palpable. After last week’s benefit with The Rosebuds, Tir na nOg is again stepping up to the plate to help, putting together a last-minute bill to assist families that, suffice to...
