What’s Up Wednesday?

By Eileen Tilson

Happy Wednesday to you all! We are a little late getting started today, but better late than never! Looking for some fun things to do tonight? I just might have some suggestions:

-You gotta support our home town boys! Mike Cooley is at The Earl for a rare solo appearance by the Drive-By Truckers‘ guitar player and songwriter.

-Born and raised in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina, Malcolm Holcombe is being recognized by the contemporary U.S and European folk/americana community as a performer of national stature, and an uncommonly unique guitarist/vocalist about whom Rolling Stone magazine says: “Haunted country, acoustic blues and rugged folk all meet [here]…” See him tonight at Eddie’s Attic.

-California old school rockers, Tesla, will be thrashing around at Center Stage tonight with Built By Stereo.

-Our pal Chad Radford over at Creative Loafing says that R. RING is a gruff and low-fi recording project that can be quite schizophrenic in its mood swings. In one instant it’ll lull you into a sweet and happy place with a dose of tender folk balladry. The next, it hits you over the head with a layered and noisy pop mantra that’s as rousing as it is abrasive. Check them out tonight at the 529 with Knaves Grave and Black Swans.
