Nashville rockers The Features rolled into Local 506 in Chapel Hill on Wednesday night to kick off their winter tour.

The band roared through a set heavy on their latest album Wilderness, released in July. Highlights included the danceable tune "How It Starts" and the cheeky "Big Mama's Gonna Whip Us Good."

They also delved into their back catalog a bit, hitting the catchy "The Drawing Board" and "Whatever Gets You By" from their 2008 album Some Kind of Salvation early in the set.

After leaving the stage briefly, the band returned for a quick three-song encore, including "Lions." The crowd would have certainly stuck around for a few more songs, but as the saying goes, "always leave them wanting more."
