At 5 p.m., Gray Young is coming by for an hour to talk. The band has several shows coming up this month, including one tonight at the Berkley Cafe with the Loners, Goner, and Asheville band Knives and Daggers, and one tomorrow at the TTWD Fest where they are playing at 4 p.m.
Rat Jackson has an album release party for their new release Midnight Get Right with Aminal and Red Collar at the Broad Street Cafe on August 7. The new album is reminiscent of Rat Jackson’s live show, which is energetic, straight-up rock n’ roll, and I have a feeling the second hour of the program is going to be just that.
At 7 p.m., there will be a pre-recorded interview with Graveyard Fields. Frontman for the Carrboro band, Brian Risk, came in last week with Pete and Andrea Connolly (of Birds & Arrows) who are also in the group. We talked about the creation of the band and their debut EP Saturn’s Moon, which has been out for a couple of months. Two of the members of the group, Carol and Jon, are expecting their first baby at any moment right now, which made for some interesting conversation.
Continuing the great momentum of the summer on the Local Beat tonight brings a variety of special guests onto the show.
Acoustic rocker Lizzy Ross from Chapel Hill will be kicking the show off at 5 p.m. to show off her recently released new album Traces, which hit the streets late in June. Hopefully we can get her to play some new songs for us live on the air. You can also catch her at the Broad Street Cafe later this evening as she is playing a free show with Chris Bryant at 10 p.m.
6 p.m. brings David Mueller of Strange and Birds of Avalon to talk about his new solo full length, Mocking Birds, which he is releasing under his Heads on Sticks moniker. This is Heads on Sticks’ first release in four years following up three EPs and is certainly the best so far. Be prepared for some experimental tripped out space rock that borders on the edge of psychadelic electronica and whimsical anarcho-pop that will surely get your foot tapping and head bobbing. This album rules.
At 7 p.m. Durham folk rockers Jeremy Blair from Effingham are coming by to chat about a variety of topics. These guys stole my heart last year with their soft pop track “I Do and I Don’t,” which was one of my top songs of 2009. I’m going to see what else they have going on and hopefully get them to play a track or two. This also marks the first time a group made a flier for the Local Beat so I am going to hold this dear to my heart.

Oh my girl punk.
Pistil, the three-piece indie pop-punk group based in Durham, NC, has graced Sessions@KNC and listeners with some brand spankin’ new tunes. This music is definitely loud, in-your-face, and catchy so take a listen to “Greedy” just below!
Pistil played at Troika this past weekend and have two more shows coming up! They will be playing at the Broad Street Cafe on Friday, December 4 as well as at The Pinhook on Thursday, January 7, so keep an eye out for these shows.
Lastly, of course, you are free to download the music from this session. Look out for a couple funny lines in “Zombie” like “I got my socks on backwards” and “I wanna eat your brain!” See individual zipped songs below!
Disclaimer: Despite my above statements, Pistil technically is not entirely a girl punk band because Ian, their drummer, is a man.
