Johnny Cake and the Lunch Truck
Hear bluegrass and newgrass from a band of New River Valley cats.
Moss Pit: Eight Point Star, Lobo Marino with dancer Katie Wells, with Peat Bogs
It’s going to get drone-y, in the best possible way, at the Cube. Eight Point Star mixes mountain fiddle, hill country blues into some trance-adjacent coolness. Richmond’s Lobo Marino reaches to the East, with haunting vocals over raga-inflected folk.
Catch some updated southern rock from a band with sweet home roots in Alabama.
Self-styled “hobbit rock” quartet returns to the Dogtown stage.
Chickenwings & Gravy
Don’t worry about which one is Chickenwings, and which one is Gravy. Just focus on that mess of blues they’re plating up.
Presley Barker & Steve Lewis
Rising young phenom flatpicker Barker was originally scheduled to play this gig with luthier/fingerpicker Wayne Henderson, who canceled in the wake of partner Helen White’s death. Lewis, of Watauga County, North Carolina, is filling in. He can relate to Barker, as he, too, was an upstart string-stinger in his younger days.
