Pattern is Movement, Beauty World
Kings, Raleigh
I have seen Pattern is Movement a number of times, in a number of odd venues, and every time has been confounding and strange and wonderful. This is their farewell tour, so I hope this show is packed. They're worth it.

Ancient River, Canine Heart Sounds, The Wyrms
The Cave, Chapel Hill
The Wyrms were born from the ashes of the Carrboro band Rogue Band of Youth -- they got a bunch of fuzz pedals and went nuts. I really dig the one song I've heard so far.

I liked the new Canine Heart Sounds album quite a bit -- and quite a bit more than I thought I was going to, given my previous experiences with them live.

The Bastages, Blue-Green Gods
The Kraken, Chapel Hill
This is a CD release party for the new Bastages CD, which has a bit of an early-80s California punk feel to it. The Blue-Green Gods here are the classic Todd/Christie/Anne lineup -- they reformed a couple of years ago for a one-off show that turned into a semi-irregular thing.
