extended play

by Ryan Snyder

It’s a punky reggae party tonight at Ziggy’s with the Wailers. Not a reference to the downtown Greensboro culinary scene, but odd-looking Maryland pop band the Dangerous Summer plays Greene Street Club with Lakeview Drive, Shiloh’s Mantra and I Call Fives. At the Blind Tiger, it’s a night of beautiful music with Crystal Bright & the Silver Hands, Channing and Quinn, and Songs of Water.

Mac and Juice! The Greenville jam brothers join Jahman Brahman and Electric Soul Pandemic at the Blind Tiger on Thursday, while the Green Bean hosts a trio of lovely songwriters in Haley Dreis, Morgan McPherson and Daphne Nichols.

On Friday, the tasteful Atlanta pop quartet the Well Reds come to the Green Bean with Old North State, who are ironically from Colorado. J. Timber and Future Ghosts are almost too much for Greene Street Club, while Jody Lee Petty pick-and-rolls into the Clubhouse. He played a little college ball, you see. Cosmic Charlie gets trippy, man, at the Blind Tiger. Andy Squint brings the bayou to Tate Street Coffee, while it’s always sunny with Psychedelphia at Blue Bourbon Jack’s. Laila Nur, Friend House and DJ Baby Eagle entertain CFBG, while Johnson’s Crossroad and L Shape Lot have fun with right angles at the Garage.

The P- 90’s hold their album release party at the Garage on Saturday, and likewise with the Bronzed Chorus at the Blind Tiger, supported by Cinemechanica and Manray. The Honeycutters play Jessup Mill in lil ol’ Westfield. Worth a trip to see them. At the Flatiron, the Radials spin some wheels, while Lonnie Walker heads up a bill with the Piedmontsmen and Old Bricks at CFBG. Things get fuzzy after that, with Mutant League, Drag Sounds and Dieters at Krankies.

The Blind Tiger hosts a fundraiser for Triad Musicians Matter on Sunday, featuring Lacy Green, Ronnie Levels & His Genius Band, Possum Jenkins, Snüzz, Allison King Band and the Raving Knaves, while the Grand Ole Uproar go it alone at Club Orion. Trebol Clan brings something for my rucas at Greene Street Club, while Matty Sheets & the Blockheads, Those Lavender Whales and Crystal Bright & the Silver Hands at finish out the weekend at the Flatiron.
