An excellent production, completely stolen by the wonderful performance by Chris Brown as Barrymore. Go see this funny play!
Dear Indie thanks so very much for this. I'd add one comment. I have two books out - the other is The Broken Flower, from Skysill Press. Poems from about 2 decades that run parallel to my previous Skysill book Gospel Earth which the Indie so generously reviewed in 2010. And at all of the readings I'll be mostly reading from The Broken Flower with some of the newly added poems to the expanded New BT included. However I'll be reading after the first of the year at the LGBT Center in Raleigh from solely from The New BT but more about that later.
Three touring Home Grown Music Network bands perform in the heart of downtown Raleigh NC on Thursday Oct 25, 2012. Dangermuffin (rock, folk, americana), Sol Roots (funk, soul, rock), and Les Raquet (rock, reggae) all perform at The Pour House Music Hall. The Pour House is a main music venue in the south east US for touring top quality national and regional bands.
About the performing music groups:
Home Grown Music Network's Featured Artist for August
New CD "Olly Oxen Free" currently #1 on the HGMN radio charts for 14 straight weeks!
On Dangermuffin’s 2010 release Moonscapes, the Folly Beach, S.C.-based trio sang about home. Even they couldn’t have expected the extent of that paradox — the album grew the band into a traveling national act, with songs on both SiriusXM’s Jam_On and Outlaw Country stations and slots at major festivals across the country. With their brand new follow up, Olly Oxen Free, Dangermuffin have returned home. No longer easily dubbed an Americana or roots-rock band, the group’s sound encompasses ska, calypso, and even Southern rock, often within the same song. Like the cry bellowed during a children’s game of hide-and-seek, Olly Oxen Free signals that it’s safe to come out from our hiding spots, gather back together, and celebrate late into the evening. Dangermuffin is more ready than ever to provide the soundtrack.
Sounds like: Band of Horses (i could sit here all day and try to think of some other bands they sound like but I can't)
Genres: Rock / Americana / Folk Rock
Home Grown Music Network's Featured Artist for July
Sol Roots is a fierce guitarist and soulful singer who has toured the world with many roots, funk, and blues legends. Sol and his band create a unique blend of rock, blues, reggae, and raw funk, all delivered with deep soul, performing tasty original tunes and bluesy, greasy jams. Sol Roots has toured across the east coast U.S. at many premier festivals and venues and have been on bills with Jon Cleary, Soulive, The Wood Brothers, Robert Randolph, Jackie Greene, Eric Lindell, Walter Wolfman Washington and more.
Sol has performed on stage and in the studio with musical heavyweights Taj Mahal, Kenny Wayne Shepard, and with the international guitar hero Cool John Ferguson, who he performed with steadily for years. Sol has soaked in much from funk, blues, and soul heroes such as Roy Lee Johnson, Albert White, and Robert Lee Coleman, while touring and gigging with these artists. Sol also created a buzz with his underground blues hiphop album entitled “Volume: Blue," that carried him overseas to perform these sets live.
With a love of Universal Music as the guiding light, Sol steps out on a path with a unique and talented band of musicians.
Recommended for fans of: JJ Grey & Mofro, Eric Lindell, The Wood Brothers

Conservatives and Republicans: please do not sign up there. These liberal organizations may throw out your registration card. Go down to the board of elections and register. Do not trust these liberal organizations. It happened to my wife and I. We saw a voter registration woman outside the Trader Joe's and registered. Weeks went by and we never got a card from the Board of Elections and then we checked online. Finally, we went to the board of Elections and registered ourselves. The guy told us that this was happening there and at Kmart. Trusting these liberals to make sure you become registered is risky.
Can white people go or is this just for blacks and illegal aliens?
Thank you, AnnaBall. I've corrected the information and added more details.

This is Mr. Mouse's big send off as he hands the reigns of the legendary club over to Mark Connor. Mr. Mouse has been steering my favorite local watering hole for years, first as master bartender under former owner Meg Sorrell and more recently (for something like 10 years) as owner himself. This particular night of music is meant to revisit some of the Cave's musical history with Taz Halloween, Billy Sugarfix and myself (Mark Simonsen) playing early (7:00pm) and two legendary Chapel Hill bands, Zen Frisbee and Shark Quest, playing the late show. If you have ever enjoyed a beer or a night of music at the Cave, please come out this Friday September 28, 2012 in honor of Mouse Mock.
This year's festival is shaping up to be one of the best ever... Rene Jordan, Ava's personal assistant is coming from California to sign copies of her new book, "Living with Miss G". Tickets are on sale now at the museum for the gala -- Casino Night. Only 10 days until the festival!!!!
