Skylar Gudasz’s signature structured lilt is crisp enough to cut a soft evening breeze and tender enough to mimic it. Performing from an upstairs window at the Carolina Theatre on Halloween last year, she filled the downtown airwaves with the celestial noir of her lauded sophomore release, Cinema: “Like the sun, I get down / Drape the day in a midnight black gown.” In this outdoor performance, expect to hear samples of the next sonic shape-shift for this Durham stalwart singer-songwriter-storyteller, who’s often likened to a southeastern-seaboard Joni Mitchell.
Easy categorizations don’t work for Raleigh and New York-rooted indie rock progenitors The Veldt, but the band’s signature blend of shoegaze and soul situates its sonic and political project: a Black-led group — begun in and around Chapel Hill in 1986 by brothers Daniel and Danny Chavis — making unprecedented alt-pop-rock experiments in a predominately white field. (And turning this position into a broader critique — see their 2007 album White Music for Black People, released under the name Apollo Heights.) Now more widely lauded for influencing the spaced-out sounds of The Weeknd’s early efforts, The Veldt ensure each of their new recordings, performances, and critical mentions feel like a canonical rupture and an insistent refrain: We’ve always been here.
Due to the forecast of rain on Wed, Sep 22, we have rescheduled this event for Wed, Oct 6 at 6:30pm.
Rissi Palmer’s self-termed “Southern Soul,” a sound interweaving R&B, gospel, and country, launched her into the mainstream as the first Black woman to chart a country song (2007’s “Country Girl”) since 1987. Her trailblazing trajectory since has centered a counter-history of country music, both in her own recordings — Revival, her 2019 album, is her most poignant personal-political statement to date — and her stewardship of the genre through Color Me Country, an Apple Music radio show focused on the Black, Indigenous, and Latinx histories of country music.
