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.

Not enough for you? There are fun interactive maps to the clubs via the Google Maps API.

Other ways to get this info:

1) The handheld-optimized version of the site, or a new simplified text version of this page, for you lo-fi fans.

2) An RSS feed. AND! A weekly oggcast! (OK, it's just my WXDU radio show.)

3) An iCal feed of all the listed shows, updated nightly.

4) This listing is posted once or twice a week to ch-scene, the mailing list which is itself a mirror of alt.music.chapel-hill.

5) For you web 2.0 fans, we have a facebook app *and* a Twitter account.

6) This amuses me:
