In all the excitement of covering a huge week in new releases, I completely forgot to discuss the live music going on around the Triangle in our Week In Preview segment published Sunday, and so we’ll do that a little late (and very quickly).
First, the Local 506… Not as big of a week as last week (mostly just because of Times New Viking last week), but the guys on Franklin St. still have a few really good shows popping off this week. Thursday, the Design is playing with Jack the Radio and Spiralfire supporting. Friday, it’s Vess and Supreme Fiction opening for Jessica Long. Then on Saturday, it’s the big non-local show of the week with Thao and Mariah headlining, Bobby and Led to Sea opening.
Cat’s Cradle also is not going to be quite as busy as last week. Sondre Lerche is playing Thursday, touring for his new album (tACKY review coming later this week). Saturday, Trekky Records is hosting an Album Release Party for Brice Randall Bickford. Phil Cook (of Megafaun), Django Haskins, Lee Waters, and Heather McEntire are all booked to play that event. Sunday, they’ll have another pretty big show with Joe Purdy and the Milk Carton Kids playing.
We mentioned Phil Cook playing Brice Randall Bickford’s AR Party, but he’ll also be playing Thursday at Kings Barcade in support of All Tiny Creatures. Kingsbury Manx and Birds and Arrows are playing the Barcade the next night. Then there’s the huge local show of the week with the Rosebuds and Charlie the Horse playing Kings on Saturday.
