Besides being rich in musical talent, North Carolina is also home to some of the country’s most influential independent record companies. This concert highlights three bands affiliated with Durham-based indie-rock champion Merge Records. The label was formed in 1989 by Laura Ballance and Mac McCaughan of the band Superchunk.
Waxahatchee, named for a creek not far from her childhood home in Alabama, is the solo musical project of Katie Crutchfield. Pitchfork says of her most recent release on Merge, Ivy Tripp, “It's exciting to hear a young voice rising so assuredly above the fray, one you can imagine inspiring kids years from now, and inspiring them to pick up guitars and sing and take control of their direction, too.” Her fourth album, Out of the Storm, becomes available on July 14.
