I find myself watching these videos compulsively in order to get myself through the week. Drooling over the sound of the guitar. The raw, in your face, realism of local music. I let the sound shock me into gear because the harder I work, the harder I can play. And seriously, where else in the Triangle of Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill can you check out TWO awesome local bands for FREE?
Only a few days away, THIS THURSDAY June 5th at Tir Na Nog for WKNC's Local Beer Local Band night..... so excited about
and opening the night will be Grass Widow
Friday is now shadowed by the almighty power Thursday night's of WKNC's Local Beer Local Band night.
And it rained rock and rock n' roll.

Tomorrow [revision] TODAY is the day--- the day to vote for your presidential candidate in the primaries. So,
and enjoy this music video from Fourth of July, "In Debt"
because I'm in debt like my country
and time has a way to make you forget how good or bad things went-- but your vote never forgets.

Why would I go stand in the middle of huge crowd of sweaty formulites on a dusty hill to barely see a band I don't even like when I can drink cold beer, see better music, not pay near as much money and rock the hell out?
So I am passing on Manchestter TN and going for Chattanooga.
Chattanooga Punk Fest
