Among the cool stuff you should do this week:

Thunderlip, channeling their inner Nantucket

WEDNESDAY: Chris Smith and Marc Smith (a.k.a. 1/2 of Patty Hurst Shifter) at Sadlack's (and it's free!)

FRIDAY: A serious toss-up on this one. I doubt I can make it to both, but either one will be worth your time.

1. Thunderlip at Volume 11 Tavern
2. The Vibe Killers, the Bleeding Hearts and The Cartridge Family at The Pour House


Afternoon: RebusFest (details below -- also free!)

a free outdoor arts celebration

Saturday, May 19, 1-6pm

art + music + food

Rebus Works is excited to announce the first RebusFest, Saturday May
19, from 1-6pm. Featuring music by local bands, and art by Raleigh
residents, RebusFest is a free community arts celebration.

Bands playing include the Loners, the Trousers, Goner, Mommie, and the
Heavy Pets.

Artists who will be exhibiting and selling their work outside include
Carrie Knowles, Lauren Turner, Kathy King, Amanda Humphries, the Handmaidens,
Joey Howard & Emily Soldin-Howard, and more.

A family-friendly event, all ages are welcome. Refreshments will be

ALSO SATURDAY: Artsplosure downtown, and Son Volt at Lincoln Theatre. I have to say, I'll be skipping Son Volt. The last time I saw them I found them extremely underwhelming. They just can't hold a candle to the Uncle Tupelo show I was fortunate enough to see way back in 1994. However, post-Son Volt Hank Sinatra will be playing for free at the Lincoln.

And if you're over in Chapel Hill: Rockabilly fest with Hickry Hawkins at He's Not Here.

Hickry Hawkins, who, I've been told, is also a massive Judas Priest fan.
