SO MUCH FUN!
Finally, a hometown place to satisfy many appetites! As far as we know, there's nothing else like Exile's eclectic menu of Southern fusion food in the RTP area. Jalapeno poppers with cream cheese hot enough to make you sweat, hamburgers with a fried egg, or chimis smothered in sweet chili and cheese. They do a decent ribeye and the pork chops and gravy could have come from grandma's kitchen. What put Exile over the top for us was the dessert. A hot apple-stuffed tortilla drizzled with Mexican caramel leche accompanied by a scoop of ice cream. We could barely wait for it to cool before digging in!

Both G., and I have spoken with Becky at the Koka Booth regarding ticket sales. Ticket sales are very low compared to the expense of the Koka Venue and is suggesting that we reschedule the benefit concert for June after OutRaleigh. I feel that it's in the best interest to the LGBT Center of Raleigh, NCCADV, SWOOP and the Susan G. Komen Foundation to take the advice of several business associates as well as Becky and move the concert date to June.
Im sure everyone knows how important this concert is to us, and the time that we have taken off to promote the event. I hope that you will join us in June when we can get more committed ticket sales from individuals. I am sorry for any inconvenience that this causes anyone. It saddens us to have to do this, but it's what's best for everyone's interest.

After seeing “Guys and Dolls" for the fifth time, I think Temple Theatre has created a well-executed production. Well know songs such as “Luck Be a Lady,” “Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat” and “A Bushel and a Peck” to name a few will not disappoint fans of “Guys and Dolls".
Corey Brunish, soon to be part of the cast in Broadway's “Bonnie and Clyde”, is charismatic as Sky Masterson. Award winning director and choreographer Peggy Taphorn directed this production and stars as showgirl Adelaide and does so with spot on comedic timing.

Saw her talk last night in Saxapahaw. An amazing young woman, dedicated to helping humanity in a big way, courageous and full of heart. The documentary was heart wrenching, and beautiful. Don't miss this one!

Well, well, well, it seems that Mr. Reed is at it again. This is a rebuttal to his yearly slam of The Scumfest. I just want to set a few things straight.
First off, the first Scumfest was in 1996. So it is in no way an Anti- hopscotch event. Really since it came first, Hopscotch is kind of an Anti-Scumfest event. Scumfest for years, has been putting on extreme acts. Metal bands, Punk bands, and any over the top acts such as the Spo-its and Schmegma have entertained crowds who expect to see and hear something different. Not to mention that Scumfest helped launch the career of Wed 13 from the Murderdolls. And it brought in great acts like Jeff Dahl, The Murder Junkies, Antiseen, The Mentors, etc. This year was as great with the premier of the movie “Metal Messiah” and new comers to the scene, Rapegoat.
Hopscotch, on the other hand, tends to lend itself to overly pretentious acts like Des Ark and the boring, independent darlings, The Rosebuds. In fact, when I saw Des Ark in the old Kings, they didn’t set up on the stage. They set up in front of the stage to “Be on the same level as their fans”. I wonder if they know how to spell the word pretentious. It made the sound guy have to reroute all of the microphone cables so he could mike the drums. Oh, and their music sucks too.
But there is another constant about Scumfest. The music editor and his little band of hipster douche bags’ hatred for Scumfest runs long and deep. In 1997 they said, and I quote, “If your idea of a good time is stepping over piles of vomit and eating undercooked pork, then Scumfest is for you”. Last year was no different in the thinly veiled insults hurled at this event, the acts, and the fans. This year again, and I quote, “it seems like 2011's hippest accessories are a foul mouth, a victim complex and questionable artistic merit. Which makes the annual assembly of bands aping the Mentors and the latter-day Dwarves, Nashville Pussy and the U.S. Bombs seem suddenly in-trend.”
It seems that these guys can write whole articles about Megafaun and Valient Thorr that read like a giddy school girl drooling over Justin Beiber. I think they call this behavior, non-biased journalism.
So, everyone give the music guys at The Independent a big Scumfest middle finger salute and look forward to next year’s tiny little hate blurb about the best show in town.
should be an awesome event!!!- some of the area's finest artists and craftsmen will be exhibiting at the Rivermill overlooking the scenic Haw River!!!
I wanted to enjoy the festival. Loved the bands. It was a beautiful night, the vendors were decent, the crowd was happy.....however the sound was the worst I've heard in twenty years. For goodness sake, invest in a good sound system, and the people to run it.
The Lizzy Ross Band better become famous. Her band is picked perfection. She has so much spunk and soul. Her voice is SO POWERFUL. Lizzy paired with their lead guitarist Jock Pyle is unlike anything that has hit NC. They are a power house and absolutely will blow you away. The 4-some is brilliant, charming, and soulful to the bone!
The Lizzy Ross band is so unique and wonderful. There music is beautifully written and there is always a song to dance to. The lead guitaris, Jock Pyle, is out of this world talented. I have never seen licks that sick!!!! Lizzy is the sweetest. The drummer has great solos and the sincere bassist is groovin!
Who's bringing the Kool-Aid? Oh, and what flavor are they serving this time? Just curious.
Can't wait for the Rumble to get here!
The bronzed chorus rawk!!! They're gonna be the next Aerosmith!!!
