Roan Yellowthorn front woman Jackie McLean, accompanied by producer and multi-instrumentalist Shawn Strack, delivers ethereal indie-rock songs with a singer/songwriter heart. Roan Yellowthorn's debut release "Indigo" has tendrils in pop, rock, indie, and folk, making the music simultaneously familiar and fresh. Their single "Lie" will make WFIV's (Knoxville) list of 100 best songs of the year.

”…reminiscent of Bright Eye’s mood setting sampling…McLean’s lyrical delivery is full of Regina Spektor-like earnestness.” - DMNDR

Valence / Fall of the Albatross / Enigmatic Path
9:00 PM21:00

Valence / Fall of the Albatross / Enigmatic Path


VALENCE: From the longest of islands comes the noodliest of instrumental progressive rock jams. Clean soaring melodies reminiscent of 70s jazz-fusion and precision craftsmanship makes Valence a delight for the discerning ear.

FALL OF THE ALBATROSS: Fall of the Albatross is one of our favorite bands to host. We've enjoyed their eclectic blend of metal, jazz, salsa and whatever other influences tickle their fancy in Chapel Hill at the dearly departed CHUG and our favorite Raleigh music hallway, Slims. Now we're bringing the magic to Durham.

ENIGMATIC PATH: Progressive metal with thrashy bits and spacey lyrics presented with intricate harmonies from some of our favorite nerds. Enigmatic Path has their eyes to the future and a deep appreciation for the prog gods of the past.

DOORS 9 SHOW 9:30 $5

GREVES: Blackened melo-death from the band formerly known as Bloodwritten. Sick riffs, tasty solos and a line up of scene veterans makes Greves one of our favorite locals.

GNARLSCAR: Asheville Death metal with some delicious shredding and a rhythm section that will keep your heads banging and fists pumping. Fast, furious and well executed, the way modern death metal should be.

DEKIRA: New kids on the block with a sound that's primarily black metal. Check out their demo on bandcamp and you'll hear something raw, evil and mysterious.

The Human Race is Filth, Shadows and Thundering Herd (metal)

Doors 7:30 show 8

THE HUMAN RACE IS FILTH: THRIF is a poisonous blend of sludge, grind and crust. 

"Walking a tight rope between heinous blasts and thick, pissed dredging, THRIF encapsulates their name well." Metal Injection

SHADOWS: Raleigh metal punk duo with a love for skating and partying and a hatred for the ste

THUNDERING HERD: Its our first time hosting a Durham band in Durham! From the rustier parts of the Bull City, Thundering Herd is a right fine metal punk rock band with a solid don't give a f**k attitude.
