Charlotte's own Ancient Cities combines psychedelic fuzz, catchy pop, and indie-style rock, and has been getting some well-deserved national press recognition lately. Stephen Warwick, Justin Fedor, Justin Faircloth, & James Dulin make up the band, and we're glad to open Studio B's doors to them on Thursday.

Pixels on Paper

Definitely one of today's most active and revered string bands, Caleb Klauder, Stephen "Sammy" Lind, Reeb Willms & Nadine Landry blend old-time, Cajun, bluegrass, honky-tonk and maybe the kitchen sink for their lively shows. They play Asheville Thursday, Knoxville on Friday, and Boone on Saturday.

We welcome Cherryville's own Unspoken Tradition for a live session of traditional, contemporary, and just plain good bluegrass. Audie McGinnis (guitar/vocals), Lee Shuford (bass/vocals), Zane McGinnis (banjo), Ty Gilpin (manolin/vocals), Tim Gardner (fiddle/vocals).

We welcome this Wisconsin-based modern roots music group to WNCW for the first time, before they play Asheville Friday night, Charlotte on Sunday, and Knoxville on Monday. The roster of others they've played with -- Trampled By Turtles, Mandolin Orange, Elephant Revival -- should give you a good idea of their inspirations.
