Son Volt w/ Johnny Irion

When: Sun., March 12, 8 p.m. 2017

As cofounder of Uncle Tupelo, Jay Farrar brought the spit and grit to the post-punk band that led the alternative-country movement of the early ’90s, which inspired later acts like N.C.’s own Whiskeytown to blend the ’60s hippie country and folk of Gram Parsons and Neil Young with the spirit of punk. But while Farrar’s partner in Tupelo, Jeff Tweedy, went more experimental with Wilco, Farrar’s Son Volt has maintained the country-folk stylings of his original band.

Price: $20-25
