Carolina Chocolate Drops 

When: Thu., Jan. 30 2014
Price: $25/orchestra, $20/gallery

string band, 7 p.m.

The North Carolina-based Carolina Chocolate Drops have a good ol', foot stompin' beat boxin', Southern sound that is bound to make your tea sweeter and accent thicker. Armed with a wide array of instruments — banjo, fiddle, cello, kazoo, spoon, jug, and even bones — these back-roads folk charmers hum a harmony straight out of a 1920s string band. Frequent visitors to the Holy City — they even played Spoleto Festival USA — the Carolina Chocolate Drops are touring in support of their latest disc, 2012's Leaving Eden, the follow-up to their 2010 hit Genuine Negro Jig. The new disc is filled with tales of ramblin' men and prison cells, broken bottles and broken hearts, and as always, it's filled with old-time flair, vaudeville energy, and Rhiannon Giddens' killer pipes. The Drops next record is set to drop in 2015, and we're hoping that their frequent lineup changes won't affect that. The Carolina Chocolate Drops are always a hot ticket here in town, and if you haven't seen them yet, you need to go ahead and take care of that. —Kalyn Oyer THURSDAY
