WEDNESDAY, JULY 8

Dylan Gilbert Charlotte's true gem in the indie scene, Dylan Gilbert is on his way to making his name familiar to the world's lips. Having already captured the heart of the East Coast, Gilbert has accomplished more in his lifetime than some musicians can even fathom. His young tenacity and fearlessness in his music shine through brighter than the stage lights that Gilbert is destined to sweat under. With Arielle Bryant and Jim Seem. The Evening Muse (Sam Webster)

Venice Is Sinking The recently released sophomore disc – AZAR, recorded with local producer Scott Solter – from this Athens quintet is a dynamic, ambitious work, sliding in somewhere between chill-out Yo La Tengo, Norfolk & Western's orchestral twang and the Album Leaf's cathedral interludes. The songs are meticulous, vertical creations, tackling tiny, specific moments and exploding them outward in what you could probably get away with calling ambient chamber rock (which I just got away with). With Little Buddha and Red All Over. Snug Harbor (John Schacht)
