Bishop/Toll/Westerlund Trio, Quetico
The Pinhook, Durham
I'm intrigued by this ensemble, which consists of Jeb Bishop (founding member of Angels of Epistemology, longtime Chicago jazz dude, now back in the Triangle), Casey Toll (bass in Mount Moriah) and Dan Westerlund (drums in a variety of local outfits).

John Davis, Brice Randall Bickford
Cat's Cradle Back Room, Carrboro
John Davis came out of that Inland Empire California lo-fi scene, where he recorded for the mighty Shrimper (early home to the Mountain Goats). A little later he was in a band (with Lou Barlow) called the Folk Implosion. They had a pretty big hit from an unlikely source, the soundtrack to the movie Kids, which just turned 20. Now John lives in the Triangle & is a schoolteacher.

Randy Bickford used to lead an amazing Triangle band called the Strugglers. His music is still just as amazing.
