Southern duo Sarah and Austin McCombie have a bright soulful love for old-time music. It’s the reason they formed Chatham Rabbits, a name inspired by a string band out of their hometown of Bynum, North Carolina. The couple crafts lively melodies and lyrics ripe with metaphors—picking through the U.S. as they live a musical life on the road, in a Winnebago, alongside their dog Ruby.

Friday 11/30. $10-12, 8pm. The Front Porch, 221 E. Water St. 806-7062.
