I'm so happy to see this collaboration, and this affordable way to attend both!
Though I know it isn't Redhat's fault she was late, I do think they could have handled the situation better. They released an updated set time initially, I wish they would have followed through and kept us updated. I also felt she was a bit more lackluster than usual. I know artists are people too, but she could have brought a bit more energy to the crowd who gave up precious show time to stay and wait on her. Kudos to Redhat for pushing past ordinance, but they should work on keeping the crowd up to date.

Thanks so much for giving me a platform to share this video far and wide. I appreciate everything the IndyWeek staff does to promote local arts music and culture !! Louis Landry
It was an editing error. It has been fixed. Thanks for pointing it out.
Why does this piece call Maceo Parker a master funk bass man when he plays saxophone?
Last paragraph is just more proof there is a double standard when it comes to justice.
Thank you so much for these clips; it was a special show.
Billy Strings was amazing as well!
Also Bri, we mailed out your tote. Sorry you didn't get it. We are happy to send you another one.
The Tuskha record will not replace the Bowerbirds record. Tuskha was part of the Kickstarter project and was initially called "Island Dweller."
Drake most underrated rapper ever. Hold On We're Going Home http://lyricsmusic.name/drake-lyrics/nothing-was-the-same/hold-on-were-going-home.html one of the best songs i ever heard in my life...
They made their goal. That said, it's not the job of rich white ladies in Raleigh to fund black separatists especially when Pierce Freelon comes from an incredibly wealthy family and could fund the whole thing without a Kickstarter. In the end someone (mommy and daddy?) dropped $6K to fund it.
Also, there's that anti-white hostility and black separatist thing he's going:
THE INDY: When we think about “spaces” in terms of physical rooms in downtown Durham where black folks feel at home and in tune with the city’s revitalization, could an unapologetic project like Blackspace come off as alienating?
PIERCE FREELON: I’m not worried about it. My obligation is not to the people who find it objectionable. My obligation is to my people—black people and black liberation. If that means that I’ve alienated a few people who might have given money, then good. I don’t want their money anyway. I’d rather raise the money from the people who I intend to liberate myself with.
Sounds like if you're white and you object to racist behavior on the part of blacks, he doesn't want your money.
But like I said, pops came through with 6K.
It makes me sad to see the class disparity in the triangle written out so clearly. The Kickstarter for Blackspace was less than 25 grand. I know for a fact that there are rich white women in Raleigh who spend 30 grand on flower gardening for their homes.
This is such an inexpensive piece of culture, and will give so much more back. If it doesn't hit the funding mark, this area needs to have a serious conversation with itself.
Same here. Can't get anything for the Snoop show (that I don't even know if I'd even attend for free).
Sounds awesome, except that every code I try for the Weezer show doesn't work. I selected "general admission" (lawn) and I have a bunch of voucher codes, but each one comes back with an error. Thanks, Ticketmaster.
This looks awesome. Can't wait to go.
The Bull Durham Blues Festival was one of the most notable festivals in the country, but because of bad leadership and underhanded dealings, the funds, that keep all festival alive, were drastically compromised.
I think Angela Lee, the new director, has gone above and beyond to try and make lemonade out of the lemons she inherited. The fact that the festival STILL IS alive, makes me give MAJOR kudos to Angela and her team.
I agree with the previous comment,,, stop trying to bury this festival before it's time! I firmly believe the blues community will pull together and help rebuild this fest! I, for one, have been to every one since it's inception! I don't plan on missing one any time soon! (oh, and for the record, this article plays down Grady Champion's headliner status. Man, have you ever seen Grady? Have you ever MET Grady! I would travel to see him (and this night was a free event!). Shame on you Grant Britt!
