Quiet Life, Amigo, The Magnolia Collective
Local 506, Chapel Hill
Amigo are a better-than-average, southern rock-influenced bar band from Charlotte. Not bad for a bunch of dudes.

The Everymen, Richard Bacchus & the Luckiest Girls
The Pinhook, Durham
Despite their playing seemingly every day party at this year's Hopscotch Music Festival, I still haven't managed to see New Jersey's Everymen.

Apache Dropout, See Gulls
The Pinhook, Durham
Was the Hopscotch buzz about See Gulls totally a function of their being spotlighted by NPR Music? Or was it the fact that they totally rule? Maybe a combination of both, because they were, and they do.

Joyce Manor, des_ark, The Exquisites, Places to Hide
Local 506, Chapel Hill
This is a FULL BAND des_ark show, and unless you've been traveling through time & space, you more than likely haven't seen this version of the FULL BAND des_ark yet.

I'm also told that Joyce Manor are the younger generation's Jawbreaker, so there's that.

John Howie, Jr. & The Rosewood Bluff, Caleb Caudle
The Cave, Chapel Hill
John Howie Jr. has never wavered in his allegiance to hardcore honky-tonk music. If Buck Owens hadn't already made his famous pledge, I'm sure John would've thought it up & made it.
