Toke, from Wilmington
Plow, from Boone
On Friday (Jan. 7), I checked out Toke, a very heavy, sludgy doom band from Wilmington, and Plow, a jammy, spacey Appalachiacore band from Boone. I've been listening to both these bands on Bandcamp, especially the Toke split with Charlotte's Green Fiend. Check out the videos below. This show took place at Schoolkids, which is always cool because the shows are pass-the-hat, they have good beer on tap, the music starts early, and you can actually browse records in between bands.
