LAST ODDCO Bluegrass Jam night in Pittsboro

CANCELLED DO TO DORIAN!

LAST JAM night of our bluegrass jam series.

Thanks for coming out! We’ve enjoyed the series the last few months, we’ll let you know when we bring it back to our schedule.

Tune up your banjo, guitar, mandolin, fiddle, Dobro or bass.

The ODDCO jam welcomes musicians looking to pick some bluegrass tunes. Feel free to bring your friends for listening. The bar will be open, we have draft beer, wine and ciders. (and maybe some pastries) If the weather is good there’s room outside for additional picking circles.

All skill levels from pros to beginners are welcome to join in but this is not a learning jam (often called a “slow jam” in bluegrass circles). We believe the jam will be a great place for musicians to meet and get to know other bluegrass pickers…. who knows, maybe you’ll even form your next band.

Mahapey Sound & Vision - Live Painting & Music Improv Experience

Join us in the Lustron Living Room from 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm on August 24th for “Mahapey Sound & Vision”, a live improvisational art creation and musical experience. 

Local non-objective painter Marcelle Harwell Pachnowski is a kinetic, intuitive painter, and through her rare neurological condition of synesthesia, she is able to see the colors and patterns of music — and paint them in real time.

Accordingly, “Mahapey Sound & Vision” will feature Marcelle painting in Oddco’s living room, in live-time on canvas, fueled by the free improvisations of an ensemble of musicians featuring Corbie Hill (guitar, percussion) and Thomas Baucom (keyboard, Moog) of Land Is , and the Stray Owls band members Matt French (guitar) and Jerry Kee (drums, multi-instrumentalist).

Suggested at-the-door donation of $3 per person for the musical acts.

You can also visit Marcelle's "Visual Rhapsodies" art exhibit running from September 18 to October 12 at the Page-Walker Arts and History Center in Cary, opening reception the evening of September 27.

Hindsight Bluegrass

Join us for an evening of modern and traditional bluegrass by Hindsight Bluegrass

The word hindsight has different meanings. One meaning in the dictionary, “understanding of a situation or event only after it has happened or developed”, came to mind after getting together to play music with friends one cold winter night. We knew we were heading into an endeavor where we could all use our talents to the fullest to create music with friends that would bring out the best in each of us. The band consists of Scott Hancock, Stan Brown, Fiddlin’ Al McCanless, Jim Boren and Julie Brown.

Land Is + Sun Studies
Jul
26
8:00 PM20:00

Land Is + Sun Studies

Land Is is the musical identity of Pittsboro musician and journalist Corbie Hill. After years playing loud and intense music with heavy prog outfit Alpha Cop, Corbie's luck turned substantially. He lost a parent, and then both he and his wife were diagnosed with cancer less than a year apart from each other. Through Land Is (and with the help of a talented core of musician friends) he navigates the terrifying circumstances of the past few years, slowly but surely processing a brutal run of luck -- and always finding hope within the darkness.


Sun Studies is a songwriting moniker featuring the wide-ranging baritone of Reid Johnson. Characters conveying false truths, current existential anxieties, and mental illness come to the forefront, carried by Johnson’s swooning voice and arresting melodies.

“spare, saturnine acoustic folk-rock bears along a striking vocal performance, heavily draped but surprisingly mobile. Johnson’s baritone has the stern majesty of Scott Walker, but it’s softened by the syrupy ache of Roy Orbison...”
-Brian Howe, Independent Weekly (NC)

The Straight 8's

ODDCO presents the Straight 8’s!

Rockabilly, Neo-Rockabilly, Hillbilly, Jump Blues, Swing ...  One of the finest things about the Straight 8s is their ability to cover a lot of ground within their genre. From traditionally styled numbers to barn burners, old country to jazz, the 8s manage to keep it feeling fresh, relevant, and braised in just the right blend of nostalgic juices. NOT a cover band, NOT an oldies act, but a truly unique trio who work hard to write, record, and perform music that resonates with listeners drawn to the raw energy embodied in traditional rockabilly music while still wandering freely outside the prescribed boundaries.

Suggested donation: $3

 Ryan Kennemur

Ryan Kennemur

Join us for a night of music by singer songwriter Ryan Kennemur. Ryan will play a couple of solo sets on Saturday night at ODDCO (there may be a guest appearance) . He is the guitarist and singer for the band Dragmatic from Raleigh NC.

"Leave it to Ryan Kennemur, possibly the most self-effacing rock-band frontman in this or any other town, to name his band Dragmatic’s new album “At Least We’re Not Dead Yet” – even when he’s trying to be glass-half-full about things, optimism just seems like an easy way out for someone as modest as him. But Dragmatic wears that underdog status well on “Not Dead Yet,” a sharp collection of raw, twangy pop-rock that should be in the strike zone for anyone who fondly remembers the Replacements." - David Menconi (Raleigh N&O)
