She packed a wallop belting her signature seductive songs in raspy soul. Folk-rock singer-songwriter Rachael Yamagata nailed it Saturday evening at the Cat's Cradle, only rivaled by her endearing stage banter. From behind draping locks, she alternated between new tunes and classics from Happenstance that a decade ago catapulted her career. Nearing the culmination of the concert, the crowd hushed and Jeremy (striped shirt below) -- who lip-synched ditty after ditty in the audience -- piped in softly harmonizing with Rachael. Applause and whistles from the crowd....he made Carrboro proud.
