Phatlynx, Salt to Bitters
The Kraken, Chapel Hill
Phatlynx are kind of the ultimate party band, in the sense that they're some of the nicest guys on earth & they want you to have a good time & they will play you surf & garage tunes until you get tired.

Zola Jesus, Deradoorian, VVAQRT
Motorco Music Hall, Durham
Lots of people whom I admire are really heavily into Zola Jesus, especially in a live context. I just watched one of her recent videos & it was nice but not mindblowing, so I'm going to assume that there's a lot more happening onstage than there was in this very pretty video with a fjord in it.

There are two really awesome songs on the latest VVAQRT album, and the rest are intentionally confusing, which is also fine.

I don't even really know what a Modine is, but there are currently two Triangle bands with that name. Are they kin to Matthew?

Eugene Chadbourne
Neptunes, Raleigh
This is one of Dr. Chadbourne's periodic month-long residencies at Neptune's. It's another installment of his New Directions in Appalachian Music series. Expect any/everything, and expect a posse of expert collaborators. Experimental Music Study Group should really be making a field trip to this show.
