Actual Proof CD Release Who knew the vibraphone could be so intriguing? The Charlotte-based progressive fusion quartet's jazz doesn't slack up on subtle funk, either. Vibraphonist and Queens University professor Eric Mullis and company swirl spacey fusion interwoven with improvisation that sounds so effortless because each member is obviously a master of his instrument and can run solo sections and then jump right back into the mix without missing a note. They are celebrating the release of their debut CD where sound exploration is the modus operandi. With Jonathan Scales Fourchestra. Double Door Inn (Samir Shukla)

I Was Totally Destroying It This Chapel Hill outfit's name may give you the wrong impression of its music. This power synth pop/rock quintet with a hardcore name sounds more like Paramore than Every Time I Die, but they still totally destroy your perception of prior pop/rock efforts. Super-charged yet soft-hearted, this one-girl-multiple-guy dynamic seems to work yet again. With The Sammies, The Groves and You Tonight. Visulite Theatre (Sam Webster)

Sam Bush Sam sure can play the man-do-lin, but man, do these bluegrass guys stretch themselves thin or what? The man's played with New Grass Revival, Bela Fleck and Emmylou Harris, to name but a few, but his most satisfying work to these ears is with his own Sam Bush Band, a sort of New-New Grass Revival (Bush's now legendary first supergroup, who more or less, like with Bill Monroe and bluegrass, defined a genre). Sam always shows up to a session ready to pick, however, and tonight's show ought not to be any different, no matter who's taggin' along. Neighborhood Theatre (Timothy C. Davis)
