Bluegrass band Chatham County Line has always had a rock ’n’ roll heart, thanks to frontman Dave Wilson’s rocker-dude tendencies – but also a fairly immaculate pop sense. And if you think Chatham County Line is unusually catchy for a bluegrass band, wait until you hear Wilson’s rock band Stillhouse. The group’s new album “The Great Reprise” (Vella Recordings) is a super-sharp collection of 10 twang-pop songs, splitting the hooks between pedal steel, rolling piano and jingle-jangle guitars. You’ll be humming them afterward, guaranteed. Stillhouse shows off the album Thursday at Raleigh’s Kings, with a late 11 p.m. start time so you can see Bob Dylan at Red Hat Amphitheatre that night. Admission is free with a Dylan ticket stub. Otherwise, it’s $8 advance or $10 at the door. See kingsbarcade.com for details. Stillhouse will also play a free show May 5 at Carrboro’s Cat’s Cradle; see catscradle.com.
