    Mike Dillon is one of the most dynamic and multifaceted percussionists in the country, best known for his unforgettable live performances, unorthodox percussion rig and distinct original sound. After emerging in late 1980's as the first to lead a rock/funk band as a vocalist and vibraphone player, contributing to its evolution by his use of effects, Dillon has become well-known for producing genre-bending music that transcends categorization. Over the last 27 years, his creative song-writing and the repertoire of artists he has worked with - - on tour, stage or in the studio - - reveal his eclectic musical inspiration and skillful versatility. Artists such as: Les Claypool, Ani DiFranco, Polyphonic Spree, Brave Combo, Sex Mob, Galactic, Secret Chief's 3, Karl Denson, Steven Bernstein, Charlie Hunter, James Singleton, George Porter Jr., Johnny Vidocavich and Bob Schneider. His individual projects include: Critter's Buggin', Garage A Trois, Billy Goat, Mike Dillon's Go-Go Jungle, Hairy Apes BMX, Malachy Papers, the Dead Kenny G's, who regularly open for Primus, and his latest, The Mike Dillon Band. As a touring musician and prolific song-writer, Mike Dillon has continuously pushed his distinct sound in new and inventive directions. On stage, Dillon is a powerful force, with boundless energy that hails a punk rock/hardcore edge and the seamless ability to play multiple percussive instruments at once. For nearly three decades, fans have been draw to Dillon's organic style, creative musicianship and the way his music never fails to stir the crowd into a big dance party from start to finish. After taking a brief hiatus from solo projects, Dillon is back at the helm with his latest quartet, The Mike Dillon Band, which delivers a cache of his new songs, infuses fresh life into his classics, and features Mike Dillon(vibraphone, percussion, lead vocals), Adam Gertner(drums), Cliff Hines (guitar, bass and keyboards) and Carly Meyers (trombone, vocals), whose raw talent, enthusiasm and infectious dance moves have created quite a stir among music goers in the past year. “The Infamous Sugar is a one-man band subsisting on piss, vinegar, shit-talk, sex-jive and, well, sugar. His sinister odes to debauchery and running with the devil come laced with hooks so delectable that biting the bait—being a belligerent badass and living to sing the stories. Armed only with a drum machine, a keyboard and his voice, The Infamous Sugar is a commanding presence. Meshing proggy keyboard workouts with steady R&B grooves, he builds a versatile foundation for his irreverent, punk-in-spirit "dirty pop." It's a perfect setting for songs loaded with Cramps-worthy sleaze and Dead Milkmen irreverence, delivered by a singer whose lascivious growl of a voice suggests James Brown and the Dwarves' Blag Dahlia in equal measure.” Zack Mexico is a fresh young quintet from the Outer Banks that sounds as much historically Carolina as it does au courant with now’s national trends. Consisting of five guys in their early-20s who live together and grew up in the dune-prevalent Kill Devil Hills, they describe themselves as ambient punk. “We don’t play surf music,” they’ve said, referring to the dub tunes they considered to be such. Fortunately, this influence has slowly crept into the band's sound. Zack Mexico hang with a musical crew that includes Critters, Mutant League and Houndogs Family Band, all acts with similar lo-fi variations on shoegaze stoner rock. More than the surf-punk side of Sublime, Zack Mexico links with younger artists like King Krule, Hunx and his Punx, and Dirty Beaches. Raleigh imprint DiggUp Tapes recently added the band to its roster. On Zack Mexico’s instantly likable debut EP, Abberation of Celestial Kokomo, lounging psychedelic guitars and a warm baritone voice seem to echo throughout. This music is as suited for hanging by the beach and gazing at the sun as it is for backing a fast-paced party. For decades, convertible Chryslers have cruised Grand Strand, blasting The Embers’ “I Love Beach Music.” Zack Mexico’s “Weird Reef” is the perfect modern-day tune for Highway 12—top down, sun and joint blazing. —Jedidiah Gant
