Bombadil at the Evening Muse tonight (8/31/2012)

Posted By on Fri, Aug 31, 2012 at 8:17 AM

BOMBADIL Bombadil’s label — Ramseur Records — picked up the Durham band after seeing it open for Ramseur’s most famous act, The Avett Brothers. That’s appropriate, since Bombadil also uses acoustic folk and Americana styles as springboards into some intriguingly nontraditional pop. Bombadil also owes a bit to indie songsters Devotchka, with the band’s tasteful chamber-pop elements, and even ’70s prog-sters, with its intricately composed though bombastic flourishes. That performance with The Avetts was six years ago, and since then, the band has seen challenges aplenty — several members have departed (from the band as well as from the state) and bassist Daniel Michalak suffered nerve damage to his hands. Shows such as this one easily could have not happened, and we suspect Bombadil knows this. So ... YOLO, right? I can’t believe I just typed that. (We can’t either. — Ed.) $7. Aug. 31, 8 p.m. The Evening Muse, 3227 N. Davidson St. 704-376-3737.
