North Elementary
North Elementary
Clarity is overrated. Just ask North Elementary, a band that boasts its blissed-out, fuzzed-out pop with swagger equivalent to its rock ‘n’ roll sensibilities. Between distorted chords and driving riffs, John Harrison leads the band through labyrinthine songs tinged with lo-fi, vintage grit. It’s the happy medium between heady, atmospheric rock and arresting noise, and Harrison and company bounce between these two poles authoritatively. From a sound that originated in bedrooms and basements in the early ’90s to Harrison’s past involvement with psychrock band The Comas, North Elementary has proven itself a chameleon. Still, in the shift from static to beeps to arresting vocals, the band maintains a distinct and inimitable identity, one that’s garnered praise from critics throughout the Triangle and beyond. North Elementary weaves sonic textures with unexpected and incredible results, merging myriad noises into concentrated meditations. Who needs clarity when there’s so much beauty in the chaos?

Thick Modine
Thick Modine
Thick Modine is a high energy trio blending soul, funk, blues and punk into their own form of rock and roll. Born out of bad taste and Van Halen jokes in a barn in rural North Carolina, Alex Norris and Martin Pitts forged a longstanding musical tragedy. False starts took their toll time and time again as they toiled for five years, without an official name. The current form came together in 2013 with Maverick Raber on bass under the name Thick Modine--a humorous homage to the music that inspires their Blues-based sound, as well as a nod to a very attitudinal neighbor. Based in Raleigh, NC, Thick Modine continues to broaden on a form of rock and roll that melds the swampy funk and growl of southern rock with the raw truth that is the essence of the blues, often with a hint of the ragged, seat-of-the-pants spontaneity that defined early punk.

Reese McHenry & The Fox
Reese McHenry (Dirty Little Heaters, Second Wife) sings and plays guitar. Stephen Gardner (T’s, Trousers) sings and plays drums. Together they make powerful, catchy, power chord-heavy music that you’ll probably enjoy, or at least take notice of.
