Cool shows this weekend: Benefits galore!

No doubt by now you've heard about the Double Barrel Benefit for WKNC at the Pour House this weekend.  Both nights will be great, but I'm most excited about seeing Roman Candle again, and checking out Spider Bags for the first time. If you want to know more about the bands, check out WKNC's blog.

Also at the Pour House on Thursday is a Haiti relief benefit with a stellar line-up: Chatham County Line,
A Rooster For The Masses, Filthybird, The Hotwires, Roger Gupton, The Debonzo Brothers and Andy Bilinski. Do not miss Filthybird. Seriously! The suggested donation is $12, and all proceeds go to the American Red Cross. Also, this is an early show with Andy Bilinski starting things off at 6:45, and Roosters wrapping it up at midnight.

Finally, from Triangle Music comes word of another interesting Haiti benefit on Saturday, this one at Local 506. Apparently a group of local bands are covering Tom Petty and Bob Dylan songs, so check it out.
