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.

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.
