Dive Recommends: March 8-16

Friday, March 8
The Dead Tongues with Schooner
Kings Barcade, Raleigh
Doors open 9 p.m, show 9:30, $6

This fabulous double bill pairs two of the Triangle’s most accomplished acts. The Dead Tongues, the latest project of folky troubadour Ryan Gustafson, plays sprawling roots rock. Durham’s Schooner offers soul infused indie pop that flutters.

Saturday, March 9
Grandchildren
Kings, Raleigh, NC
Doors open 9 p.m., Show 9:30 p.m., $6

Hailing from Philadelphia, Grandchildren is an electro-acoustic orchestral band made up of 6 members that released its first album, Everlasting, in 2010 and is releasing its new record, Golden Age, in May this year. Electronic pops beats, lofty high octave vocals and sometimes busy sometimes simplistic string instrumentation give the band a contradicting dance and folk sound. Oulipo and Ghostt Bllonde will also share the bill.

Thursday, March 15
Mission of Burma
Cat’s Cradle, Carrboro
Doors 8 p.m., Show 9p.m., $16/18

Mission of Burma was formed in Boston in 1979 but disbanded just four years later. The band reunited almost 20 years later in 2002 and its most recent release, Unsound, came out last year. The post-punk rock band not only breaks out the crunchy guitar, playful shouting vocals and heavy bass for the newest record but the band also threw in a trumpet to expand on its stretching versatility. The show will also include Eula.

Last Year’s Men with Daytona
The Pinhook, Durham
Doors 9 p.m., Show 10 p.m., $6

Chapel Hill garage rockers Last Year’s Men tears through its raw tunes with ferocity. Expect sharp power chords, thick bass lines and classic rock ‘n’ roll debauchery. Brooklyn’s Daytona will grace the opening spot with groovy dance-rock.

Friday, March 16
A Mad Affair
Local 506, Chapel Hill
Doors 9 p.m., Show 9:30 p.m., $6/8

The Chapel Hill trio has a sugary sound with Valerie Wood’s lead country blues vocals nestled on top of finger-picking guitar, rich stand-up bass and the occasional enchanting violin or strummed ukulele. The quintessential Americana band released its debut album, Retro Honey Pop, last year. The Morning After will also perform.
