Music Menu: Johnny Winter, Volatile Baby

Posted By on Sat, Jun 27, 2009 at 10:19 AM

Johnny Winter Of course to say that Winter is a blues-rock icon is stating the obvious. Forty years down the road from his 1969 recorded debut, Winter fires up his guitar accompanied by that unmistakable throat and settles into a burning blues mode with such ease that breathing becomes non-essential. Just go for crying out loud. With Cyril Lance. Neighborhood Theatre (Samir Shukla)

Volatile Baby If you don't get to see them at the Pewter Rose on Friday, June 26, well, it sounds like this is probably your last chance. From what I've gathered via rumors, chats and Facebook (e-mails went unanswered), it sounds like keyboardist Allison Modafferi is heading out for a new project and the future of Volatile Baby remains uncertain. So, at this point, they're making like Nine Inch Nails and calling them the "last shows." Solid female three-part harmonies help the band stand out from the pack. If the rumors are true, it's going to leave a hole in the Charlotte music scene's talented landscape. Pewter Rose (Jeff Hahne)
