This week's cool shows: Manchild book release and more!
Local drummer/artist/punk historian Brian Walsby celebrates the release of his latest book, Manchild 5, with a party this Saturday, Jan. 8, at Kings. Righteous Fool, Church or Zahn (includes Benny from Valient Thorr and The Kick Ass) and The Kick Ass are scheduled to play. Despite previous reports, Double Negative is not playing this show.
A copy of the book comes with admission, and there will be food from The Remedy, Capital Club 16 and Vic's. Jed at New Raleigh had a great write-up and review of the book, complete with a few excerpts. This is going to be a great show, and a fun celebration, so definitely do not miss it.
