Cool shows this week: Shakori Hills and more!

Just from anecdotal evidence it seems like most people are headed out to Shakori Hills this weekend. You'll have plenty to see if you go: Bela Fleck, Bowerbirds, The Beast, Hammer No More the Fingers and a solo Des Ark are all on the schedule, so this is really going to be a full weekend of great music and family-friendly fun.

In Raleigh, the big news is the opening of the new N.C. Museum of Art. The Beast and Orquesta GarDel will be there Saturday. 

If you're not headed out to Shakori, you still have quite a few in-town options, including my new favorite band, Light Pines, at Tir na Nog on Thursday. On Friday, Gray Young, Mount Moriah, and Jews and Catholics will be at Duke Coffeehouse while Rocket Cottage, Torpor and The Infamous Sugar will be at Slim's on the same night.  Saturday's shows include Chip Robinson at Slim's, Black Skies at Dive Bar, Red Collar, Lonnie Walker, Bellafea at Duke Coffeehouse, and Whatever Brains, Invisible Hand, The Alphabet, Gross Ghost at the Berkeley.
