This week's cool shows: Viper, David Allan Coe and more!


Thursday, Nov. 13: David Allan Coe, Volume 11

One of the hardest working and rocking outlaw country artists around.

Thursday, Nov. 13: Black Skies, Slim's

Super HEAVY rock from Chapel Hill. With Pride Parade from Athens.

Thursday, Nov. 13: Brightblack Morning Light, Local 506

Trippy hippie duo from California (originally from Alabama) playing some serious psychedelic blues.


Friday, Nov. 14: Viper with Faith in Ashes and Soulpreacher, Berkeley Cafe

I've heard amazing things about Viper from Dio, who really is the local metal guru, and whose taste and opinions I always respect. I haven't seen these guys yet, but they seem to be in the same hard-rocking, classic-metal loving vein as Colossus. They also apparently cover Riot, which automatically makes them great in my book. As for Soulpreacher, check out the footage I shot of them last year.

Saturday, Nov. 15: Future Islands with Ear Pwr and Lonnie Walker, Local 506

Saturday, Nov. 15: Allister Fiend, Slim's

Motley Crue tribute

Sunday, Nov. 16: Legendary Shack Shakers, Berkeley Cafe

I saw these guys ages ago, and they put on a totally crazy show. Duane Dennison of the Jesus Lizard (one of my favorite bands ever), is their new guitarist.

Monday, Nov. 17: The Whistlestop, Pour House

Some mellow, local all-star alt-country for a Monday night.

Tuesday, Nov. 18: Man Will Destroy Himself Slim's

Thursday, Nov. 20: Strange Faces, Slim's

Tour kick-off party.


Nov. 21: Double Negative with Rocket Cottage Slim's

Raleigh's hardcore kings, soon to be heading to Europe and playing ATP.

Nov. 23: Karen Mann's Birthday Bash with Sir Arthur & the Royal Knights and Dirty Little Heaters Slim's

Come out and help yours truly celebrate with the fine, Nuggets-style rock of Sir Arthur, and the angry-female rawk of Dirty Little Heaters.


Nov. 26: Pre-Turkey Day bash with The Bronzed Chorus, Tir na Nog

One of my favorite new bands, from Greensboro.

Nov. 29: The Loners with Pinche Gringo, Slim's
