The New Familiars at Capital Ale House

Mountain music has just come so far from its washboard-zipping, washtub-thumping ways. Bands such as the New Familiars successfully cobble influences, from folk and acoustic to something sounding suspiciously like indie rock. There's even a Black Crowes kind of howl that creeps into frontman Justin Fedor's voice, which is meant in the best possible way, the Southern-rockin' way, not the fraternal-infighting, Kate-Hudson-marrying way. It explains the band's name, which in itself is a miracle: music genres telegraphed in from distant corners of the culture, all collected in a little holler in the mountains and broadcast back out once it's all decoded. And carried on a smooth signal. The New Familiars play downtown's Capital Ale House Music Hall on Friday, March 27, at 10 p.m. $5. 780-2537. — Brandon Reynolds
