extended play

by Ryan Snyder

Tonight, local melodic hardcore heroes To Speak Of Wolves return home with Solid State labelmates Emery at Greene Street Club. Widespread Panic fans who just can’t wait for the upcoming NC run should check themselves into the Blind Tiger for covers by Machine Funk.

Caleb Klauder is not quite an anagram of Caleb Caudle, but he is a little more twangy. He’ll be at the Garage on Thursday with the Cajun Country Revival. Multi-instrumentalists EW Harris and Don Paris Schlotman will make a racket at Elliot’s Revue, and Asheville post-jam livetronica outift Papdosio plays the Blind Tiger.

April fools better recognize Kill the Noise AKA Ewun AKA Ludachrist at Artistika on Friday. He hit Raleigh the night before with electronic giant Tiesto, and he’s gracing Greensboro on his off night. For dirtier beats, there’s 12 th Planet and Vaski at Greene Street Club. For electrotinged rock, check out Science In the Cave, Sugar Glyder and the Ethnographers at the Garage. Honey Rider (not the Bond girl) plays Elliot’s Revue, and Honor By August and White Rifles wage at the Blind Tiger. There’s hard rock of different tilts with the Old One-Two at the Flatiron and Reverend H Chronicles at Somewhere Else Tavern. The Green Bean has rockin’ country with Johnson’s Crossroad and the Grand Ole Uproar, and refugees of the Mood Cultivation Project formed Adharma, who’re playing Club Orion. For the hardest of the hard, Legitimate Business has Capsule, Systems and Torch Runner.

Rapper AP suffered severe burns while fighting an apartment fire, and the local hip-hop community is coming together for a benefit at the Garage hosted by Ignite & Imagry. Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band funks out with doby at the Blind Tiger, and the Extraordinaires come from Philly to play the Wherehouse with Adam Thorn and Burglar F$%#er (really?).

Locals come out to the Blind Tiger on Sunday with the Animal Mothers and Come Hell or High Water. Greene Street has hip hop with Kendrick Lamar, SkyBlew, Mack Jones and FSM, and there’s flamenco with Ed Stephenson & the Paco Band at the Broach Theatre. On Tuesday, maybe you’ve seen the Whigs on Letterman (or maybe not), but you’ll certainly see them at the Blind Tiger.
