The Extraordinaires

Couldn't make it down to SXSW? JMU's annual MACRoCK festival has you covered with an indie music extravaganza that's much closer to home, and this show serves as an official pre-party. Similarly, if the Decenberists' move away from sprawling narrative epics on the deliberately sparse new album The King Is Dead has left you lukewarm, you'd do well to check out these excellent locally-rooted folk-rockers in the meantime, since they never fail you deliver when it comes to concept pieces and outlandish merchandise. Also featuring the delightful Harrisonburg rock duo The Cinnamon Band.
