The Cave Singers 

8 p.m. Monday, April 11. The Old Rock House, 1200 South Seventh Street.

If you needed more proof that bucolic folk music remains a dominant strain of modern indie rock, look no further than the chameleonic career of Derek Fudesco. After helping form the shit-kicking garage-rock band Murder City Devils and dance-punk stylists Pretty Girls Make Graves, the guitarist and bassist went in a grainier, quieter direction with the Cave Singers. The trio welds stripped-down, acoustic folk melodies with Pete Quirk's well-worn but emotionally resonant vocals. The band just released No Witch, its third overall record but first for indie tastemaker Jagjaguwar. The Cave Singers' rustic aesthetic meshes well with the label's history for releasing adventurous, oft-experimental folk music.
