Friday and Saturday, Feb. 6 & 7: WKNC Double Barrel Benefit, Pour House
A stellar two-night lineup to benefit N.C. State's awesome student radio station.
Friday: Lonnie Walker, Lost in the Trees, Schooner and Bowerbirds.
Saturday: Polvo, Birds of Avalon, Violet Vector and the Lovely Lovelies and I Was Totally Destroying It.

Saturday, Feb. 7: Grappling Hook, In the Year of the Pig and Monsonia Pinhook
I love the fact that Grappling Hook list Les Binks, Leon Russell and Chris Eubanks as influences. In the Year of the Pig will pulverize your brain. No lie. Monsonia's angry clashing/soft meloies remind me so much of a band I would have loved at the Miracle House in 1991, that I stared to think they were seriously behind the times. But then I had a sobering thought: That era was nearly 20 years ago, and so probably is just about due for a revival.


Friday, Feb. 13: Great 8 Showcase, Local 506
Each year The N&O's David Menconi makes a list of 8 local acts to watch in the new year. This year's crop will be announced soon. From what I know of the list (and don't ask me because I'm not telling), this is going to be a good show.
