This week's cool shows: Kingsbury Manx and more!

Even though Kingsbury Manx got a lot of attention with last year's "Ascenseur Ouvert!" the band has actually been around for a decade, and they're going to celebrate their anniversary with a few shows this year featuring original member Kenneth Stephenson. One of those shows is this Friday at Slim's in Raleigh, and it's a benefit for a friend of the band who is undergoing a lung transplant.

Also this week, Ben Davis & the Jett$ will be at Nightlight on Thursday, and Static Minds are having their single release party at the Berkeley on Saturday. Tuesday brings two great shows with Lonnie Walker at Slim's, and Mount Moriah, Sandwitches and Filthybird at Nightlight.

Don't forget about the rescheduled Shadow benefit w/ OAKTeam, Kenny Roby & Scott McCall, Countdown Quartet (in the only public show I can remember since their fantastic finale at Sadlack's), John Howie, Jr. & Billie Feather, and Big Machete (featuring members of Kickin' Grass) at The Berkeley Cafe. As good as all these bands are, I'm most excited to see Countdown Quartet again. They and Kenny go way back so I'm sure there will be some set bleed.

Forgot to mention, that's on Sunday the 7th.
