Concert preview: Terry Anderson and the Olympic Ass-Kickin Team at Ace of Cups

Joel Oliphint

This North Carolina drummer/singer/songwriter may be best known for writing songs covered by the Georgia Satellites (“Battleship Chains”) and Etta James (“I Can Give You Everything”), but Terry Anderson and his band, the Olympic Ass-Kickin Team, can turn heads all on their own with a blend of brainy, hooky bar-rock that'll likely appeal to fans of NRBQ. Anderson's kindred spirit, local songwriter and Watershed co-frontman Colin Gawel, opens the show with his band the League Bowlers. (Safe bet)

8 p.m. Friday, May 3

2619 N. High St., Old North
