Up for a short road trip Friday night?
Bowerbirds and Megafaun at the Haw River Ballroom are well worth it. Elliott’s Revue begins its swan song with Jews and Catholics and the Piedmontsmen. Ahhh, ‘90s ska. The Pietasters bring it back at Ziggy’s. Hard-rocking Dallas quartet Jonathan Tyler & the Northern Lights play the Clubhouse, while the Eric Brace-led Americana band Last Train Home come to the Garage. Krankies hosts folk by SalemSpeaks and Benyaro, while CFBG brings loud rock music by Hot Ropes, the Raving Knaves, Fake Mustache and the Old One-Two. At Zion Bar & Grille, the Fairlanes lead the Bluesin’ for Boobies benefit.
On Saturday, Raleigh’s Debonzo Brothers evoke everybodyfield-ish alt-country with Johnson’s Crossroad and Reagan Boggs at the Green Bean. Same As It Ever Was is all Talking, no Head at the Blind Tiger. Figure brings the wub-wub-wub to Greene Street Club. Three Oh Sees and Burglar F---er are eons apart musically, but they’ll share the Krankies stage. It’s family night at the Garage with Matrimony and the Kopecky Family Band, while Pato Banton is no blood relation to the incarcerated Buju, though the musical roots run deep at Ziggy’s.
Sunday is psychedelic at the Flatiron with the Old One-Two and the P- 90’s. There’s synthpop by Slowriter at the Green Bean. You might remember Flow Tribe from backing the hot Arabic girl from “Real World: New Orleans.” They play the Blind Tiger on Monday. Indie-rockers Coast Ghost play the Flatiron on Tuesday, the the Greensboro Coliseum has a hardcore extravaganza with Five Finger Death Punch, Hatebreed and Rev Theory.
