LEWISTON – Friday, Jan. 16, delta bluesman Jesse Ray Carter of Roanoke, Va., will return to She Doesn’t Like Guthries.

Saturday, Jan. 17, the restaurant/cafe will host a triple bill indie rock night with genres ranging from country-influenced rock to punk to powerpop. Portland bands Dead End Armory and Huak will join Orono band Wood Burning Cat for a night of music.

“The duo Wood Burning Cat delivers wit, tempered sarcasm and pointed perceptions shouted over big, thrusting chords and beats that gather force and momentum, making for satisfying entertainment,” according to a review in The Bollard.

Huak’s music is performed with agility and verve by Jake Lowry, Stefan Hanson and Eric Loren. It’s complex, challenging yet straightforward: a lashing out, a diatribe against conventions,” according to The Bollard.

Dead End Armory, a four-piece rock band, is often described as “Willie Nelson meets The Pixies. Their sound ranges from spare, solemn songs to the cacophonous noise of Sister-era Sonic Youth,” according to Peopod Records.

There is no cover charge for either show. Both start at 9 p.m. For more information, call 376-3344 or visit myspace.com/guthriesplace.
