extended play

by Ryan Snyder

Enjoy your outdoor concert series while they last, because the herd is starting to thin. One of those, Tunes at Noon in Center City Park, is still marching on and features folk singer Andrea Reese today.

Don’t confuse Mark Stuart with the Audio Adrenaline frontman or the one of the Bastard Sons. This one is son of the legendary Marty, and he’ll be at the Garage on Thursday. Hardcore supergroup ORBS kicks off their new album at Legitimate Business with Junius, Andrew Sloman and Frech indie-rockers General Bye Bye get just a little weird at the Green Bean. If you’re into American Idol rejects, the Blind Tiger hosts a Back to School Party with the Chris Lane Band.

Since you read last week’s lead music story, you already know that Codeseven will reunite at Greene Street Club with Blankface and Uzzard on Friday. Jam heads will want to check out Electric Soul Pandemic with Duk Tan at the Blind Tiger.

Great Architect and their obsession with The Holy Mountain will perform at the Green Bean. In Winston-Salem, Vagabond Saints Society presents a Tribute to Elton John at the Garage and saxophonist Marcus Anderson plays the summer’s last Downtown Jazz session.

The big indoor shows are slowly starting to trickle back into town, starting with Anthony Hamilton, Kem, Jaheim and Raheem Devaughn playing Superfest at the Greensboro Coliseum on Saturday. The Patrick Rock Band with special guest Joey Barnes of Daughtry plays the Blind Tiger, while the Phive Mics hit Greene Street Club. Sun Lips, Cakes of Light and Ghost Beach triple up at the Green Bean, while 44 Love, Ned Van Go and Kevin Abernathy Band play the Garage. Edwin McCain plays the Wyndham’s Sponsor party and Chairmen of the Board are somewhere in Winston- Salem, though they’re invite-only deals, so why not check out the Martha Bassett Band playing Summer on Trade instead?

This Sunday, country-rockers American Aquarium and Ponderosa play the Blind Tiger, while Rough Cut Band and Bruce Piephoff entertain your Sunday Evening in the Park in Bur-Mil. Raina Rose wraps it all up on Tuesday at the Garage.
