Dex Romweber Duo at Snug Harbor tonight (9/9/2012)

Posted By on Sun, Sep 9, 2012 at 8:31 AM

Siblings Dex and Sara Romweber — the guitarist and drummer of this Chapel Hill duo — have been essential players in the North Carolina independent music scene since the ’80s. Sara played with Winston-Salem pop-rockers Let’s Active, while Dex’s Flat Duo Jets' scorching rockabilly influenced, among others, some guy named Jack White. The duo that plays Snug tonight still features Dex’s scorched-fretboard technique, natch, but he and Sara also explore honky-tonk and outlaw country flavors. It’s not a huge shift, though, from rockabilly shred to western shuffle: both styles evolved in parallel from an early, pre-rock form — hillbilly music This common ancestor continues to educate Dex’s guitar approach, even as Sara’s percussive patience keeps him grounded. With The Dirt Daubers. $8. Sept. 9, 9 p.m. Snug Harbor, 1228 Gordon St. 704-333-9799.
