I've got to admit that going into this show I was more excited for my first show at Haw River Ballroom than I was for the sets I was getting ready to see, however between the absolutely stellar performance from Frank Fairfield and a spot-on set from the Cass McCombs band led to an incredible evening. For starters though it needs to be made clear how incredible Haw River Ballroom is, the aesthetics are phenomenal and the sound is just as great. From the kids running around before the show to the attached general store, you walk through the doors and feel at home. With only one show Haw River has become one of my favorite venues in the state, I'd recommend going to a show there at your absolute earliest availability. You won't be disappointed.

There's some must-see shows coming up in these next couple of weeks, so a Hear Here seemed fitting for return yet again! Between a Haw River Ballroom set from Cass McCombs, Free DiggUp Tapes show at Kings, and the amazing Save Our Arts Benefit at Motorco, the Triangle has got a lot to be focused on. So here's the shows that we'll be checking out in the next week:

It was a fantastic year for the Carolina music scene in 2011 and after taking a bit of time to let it all soak in I think I've fumbled the list around enough to have determined what I feel are the ten best albums to be released in North Carolina from 2011. In a year that saw both of North Carolina's newest and brightest festivals garner massive national attention thanks to picking up some of the hottest and most talented artists in the national scene, we also saw the local scene continue to pump out fantastic releases. Between Mount Moriah's long awaited full-length, a sophomore smash from Carolina rap favorites Kooley High, the return of Bombadil and much much more, we have had an incredible year of music in the tobacco state. So without further ado, let's get down to the Top 10!
|Some Army will be releasing their self-titled 7" @ Local 506|
on Friday January 13, 2012 w/ Fan Modine & Prypat
Bagget's soothing vocals serve as the perfect compliment to the ethereal sounds of Some Army's instrumentation. It's slow brewing psychedelic rock music with brilliant melodies that give it a bit of a folk/pop twist to make for an incredibly interesting listening experience.
