CRITIC’S PICK: The passing of Dexter Romweber, who reportedly died of natural causes at home on Friday, Feb. 16, shook the indie-rock world to the core. On Thu., Apr. 25, a concert at The Earl organized by Jeffrey Butzer pays tribute to the life and legacy of the Chapel Hill, NC, native and guitarist extraordinaire. Romweber was best known as co-founder of Flat Duo Jets and Dex Romweber Duo, the latter with sister and drummer, the late Sara Romweber. Usually slinging a vintage Silvertone electric guitar, Romweber performed numerous times in Atlanta including an especially memorable solo set under a tarp in the rain during Drive-Invasion at The Starlight Theater. “He was always so present while performing, sometimes it felt scary watching him, especially if you cared about him personally,” says Butzer. “I miss him so much.” The band lineup for “Dreams Don’t Cost a Thing” features Gentleman Jesse, George Harris with the Compartmentalizationists, Tom Maxwell, Rod Hamdallah, W8ing4UFOs, Don Chambers, FLAP, and Se. Artie Mondello. Earlier in the week, on Sat., Apr., 20 (Record Store Day), Criminal Records is hosting an “all Dex day” with some of the same musicians. — Doug DeLoach
