Sarah Shook is best known for their work fronting the pink-tinged alt-country outfit Sarah Shook & The Disarmers, but Mightmare marks a bold new territory for the songwriter. Their debut full-length record Cruel Liars is a fuzzed-out dark indie pop outing that’s propelled by Shook’s twangy and evocative vocals. Mightmare’s live debut in the Triangle is bound to be a memorable showing, and a must-see for longtime fans of Shook.
Breaking into the local music scene earlier this year, Dreamboat, an indie rock quartet, plays their brand of rock ‘n’ roll loud and furious. Fronted by Sydney Nieboer and joined by the likes of familiar Charlotte musicians Nic Pugh, Caiti Mason (Pullover), and Nicholas Holman (Coughing Dove), the band fuses Nieboer’s lyrics into riotous anthems, connecting on multiple levels with listeners. Dreamboat’s debut self-titled EP dropped in August and includes high-energy standout tracks like “Glitter Eyes” and “Cover To Cover.”
