The Crow Quill Night Owls' old-timey Americana tonight (10/26/11)

Posted By on Wed, Oct 26, 2011 at 12:00 AM

The Crow Quill Night Owls The combo’s old-timey mash of blues, ragtime, jazz and country, played with lovingly aged acoustic instruments, is a party on a rickety porch. It’s like hopping back in time to the origins of American music, drinking jug in hand, and watching it spin on an old 78rpm record, the hiss and the pops included. With Blind Boy Chocolate & the Milk Sheiks, Brody Douglas Hunt and Geoffreaux. $7-$9. The Milestone. www.themilestoneclub.com. (Samir Shukla)

Timothy Bloom brings soul of Jeff Buckley to Knight tonight (10/25/2011)

Posted By on Tue, Oct 25, 2011 at 8:33 AM

TIMOTHY BLOOM If there’s a heaven out there, it looks like Jeff Buckley’s already tracked down Curtis Mayfield and cowritten a handful of songs that are a bit more ethereal than what either did before shuffling off this mortal coil. And they've transferred the fruits of their collaboration to Fayetteville singer Timothy Bloom, whose sublime ballad “‘Til the End of Time” (its extremely sexy video is below) could be a lost track from Grace. On Bloom’s debut EP, The Budding Rose, released in April, he shows great potential as an adventurous soul singer/songwriter in the vein of Van Hunt. Aside from the EP, Bloom wrote a pair of Mayfield-inspired tracks for the soundtrack to Becoming Barack: The Evolution of a Leader, including the lightly funky “We’re a Winner.” Bloom comes to Knight Theater on Oct. 25, opening for feminist New Orleans soul singer Ledisi, whose Grammy-nominated 2009 album, Turn Me Loose, combined the sass of Aretha with the cool of Erykah. A night of updated Southern soul not to be missed. $25-45. Knight Theater. www.blumenthalarts.org.

Posted By on Tue, Oct 25, 2011 at 12:00 AM

Ledisi The multiple-Grammy nominee is making Charlotte a routine stop during her travels but this time there’s no splitting the bill, it’s her show, her night, her stage. Since her last visit, she’s released her fifth studio album, Pieces of Me, which debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard charts behind the strength of the title track. Soul doesn’t get much better right now . $25-45. Knight Theater. www.blumenthalarts.org. (Mike McCray).

Hanson brothers bring keenly crafted, earnest pop tonight (10/25/11)

Posted By on Tue, Oct 25, 2011 at 12:00 AM

Hanson They know they’ll never shake the songs and packaging that launched them into our consciousness but if you’re one of those people who just wrote them off as that boy band from your adolescence then you’ve missed out on these brothers proving to be earnest and true musicians with keenly crafted material that will never be as pop as it once was but will stick with you in a positive sense much, much longer. Charlie Mars joins. $25-28. Amos' Southend. www.amossouthend.com. (Mike McCray)

Memory House's sublime melodies tonight (10/25/11)

Posted By on Tue, Oct 25, 2011 at 12:00 AM

Memory House With their 5-song debut EP, The Years, making waves in all the right ponds (Pitchfork, Stereogum, et al), the Toronto-based duo of Evan Abeele and Denise Nouvion finds itself signed to Sub Pop, the Seattle label that has moved so far from its Grunge roots it sounds more like vintage 4AD nowadays. And Memory House may be the culmination of that metamorphosis: Sublime melodies emerge like shafts of late afternoon sunlight through a forest of reverb, tinkling keys and shuffling beats, Nouvion’s gossamer vocals floating over it all like a half-remembered dream. With Yes Professor and Jesse Clasen. $8/$10. Snug Harbor. www.snugrock.com. (John Schacht)

Hull's stoner rock tonight (10/25/11)

Posted By on Tue, Oct 25, 2011 at 12:00 AM

Hull Yeah, three guitars will do it. Hull’s unrepentant stoner rock is even caressed with some fine acoustic guitar work, psychedelic riffing and spacey soundscapes. The Brooklyn quintet’s new album, Beyond the Lightless Sky, channels Neurosis, Mastodon and like-minded sludge, all the while evolving an original signature laced with subtleties. With the Fucking Wrath. $7/$9. Milestone. www.themilestoneclub.com. (Samir Shukla)

Evelynn Rose leave Southern rock behind tonight (10/22/11)

Posted By on Sat, Oct 22, 2011 at 12:00 AM

Evelynn Rose If you haven’t caught an Evelynn Rose show recently, don’t go into this one with any preconceived notions. The band has transformed into something a bit heavier — driving guitars, straight-forward, more intense vocals. Instead of standing still, they decided to keep progressing forward and leave the Southern rock behind them. $7. The Evening Muse. www.theeveningmuse.com. (Jeff Hahne)
