Tift Merritt is throwing a party Saturday night at the North Carolina Museum of Art. M.C. Taylor of Hiss Golden Messenger, Eric Slick of Dr. Dog, and Alexandra Sauser-Monnig from Mountain Man will be there. So will someone who calls himself the Suitcase Junket.
The concert is a homecoming of sorts. Merritt recently moved back to her hometown of Raleigh to reconnect with friends and family as she became a mom. She's also promoting her latest album, Stitch of the World.
Bonus: Tonight at 6 p.m., Tift and I will spin some records over on WUNC Music.org and at 91.5 HD2.
