Pinkerton Raid

March 10 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

dreamer folk/campfire pop/retro rock

The Pinkerton Raid’s Jesse James DeConto hails from New England, with his dad’s guitar and mom’s radio tuned to Soulsville, The Village, Liverpool and Laurel Canyon, now mining foothills-folk in Durham, N.C., for songs AMERICANA-UK calls “anthemic.” Critics hear influences from Iron & Wine to Bowie. “Radiant,” says AMERICAN SONGWRITER.

The band has opened for Illiterate Light, The Ballroom Thieves and Noah Gundersen. They’ve slotted at Daytrotter and at festivals like Shakori Hills, Albino Skunk, H St. and AVLFest with artists such as Jaime Wyatt, Sunny War, River Whyless and The Bones of JR Jones.

“A sound for dreamers around a campfire,” says GHETTOBLASTER. “A towering forest of indie rock with a timbre of folk that shadows Langhorne Slim, Cold War Kids and The Killers,” says THE SPILL. “Recommended if you like Wilco and The Band,” says HERE COMES THE FLOOD.
