On Saturday, Aug. 29, Annuals, The Never, Hammer No More the Fingers and Birds of Avalon will play Cat’s Cradle to celebrate the release of Hear Here: The Triangle, a 17-track compilation featuring loads of new songs (and a few old cuts) from several of the Triangle’s best bands: The Rosebuds, Lonnie Walker, The Love Language, Birds of Avalon, The Kingsbury Manx and many more. A copy of the compilationa joint production between Flying Tiger Sound, Terpsikhore Records and 88.1 WKNC FMis included for $10 admission at the 8:30 p.m. Cradle show.
And it’s totally worth it, if for nothing more than the best Lonnie Walker song yet (“Feels Like Right,” which opens the disc) and the funniest The Rosebuds song yet (“Brad Cook Is Not Your Man,” which closes the disc). A promotional video for Hear Here has been making the rounds, and it includes “Flesh and Blood,” a Johnny Cash cover by Annuals that didn’t make the final cut due to licensing rights. The video approved tracklisting will be waiting after the jump.
