The Shilohs bring jangle-pop to Local 506

Johnny Payne has done everything you can do working at a record store, plus one more: forming a band. Payne sings and plays guitar in The Shilohs, a jangle-pop band from Vancouver, British Columbia. They’re playing with The Fresh and Onlys Friday at Local 506 in Chapel Hill.

Payne’s record store co-worker was Daniel Colussi (vocals, bass). In 2008, they started to form The Shilohs. Payne had seen Mike Komaszczuk (vocals, guitar) playing country music in a bar, got his number and asked him. Payne had jammed with drummer Ben Frey before, and asked him, too. In 2010, The Shilohs released their first EP, and their self-titled sophomore album came out in May on Light Organ Records.

Embarrassing itch requires super-sleuthing

Q. I have been experiencing an embarrassing anal itch for two months. My physician doesn't seem interested beyond prescribing lotions that don't do much after the first few minutes.

Using seasonal abundance from CSAs

Right now I have eight medium-to-large zucchini in my refrigerator just waiting for me to decide their ultimate fate. Why? I joined Maple Spring Gardens CSA (Community Supported Agriculture)  in Cedar Grove, this spring.
