Woo-h00! Sherman Lee Dillon, and the M.S.G. Acoustic Blues Trio... and more, all in one show!
Thanks, slipjig. We had the event at Outsiders Art (http://www.indyweek.com/indyweek/old-time-…) but hadn't ended it here. Fixed!
This jam still goes on, but is now held at Outsiders Art, 718 Iredell Street.
Tax Day this year is gonna be a brawl!

Horseskull laid it down rocking the Casbah in full fashion. Here is the factual proof..
This will be a great bluegrass show!
I saw this play last night. While Taylor Mac was absolutely astonishing as the Emcee, he practically carried the show by himself. The lead actress was a lovely singer but she had no chemistry with her love interest.
But the biggest distraction was the design of the production. If this was 1930s Germany there was hardly a clue to that in the costumes and staging. I was trying to figure out if they had tried to stage Nazi Germany in a different era. The chorus was dressed and coiffed in a style for some period I could not identify. I found the production to be entirely too American in feel and it distracted from the story,
Went to the 7pm show which lasted all of an hour. Band was not tight at all and to me sounded like they could crash and burn at any moment. Nic Payton is great even if he was just playing scales. David Sanchez sounded atonal and discordant whenever he played which was not much. Stefon Harris sounded pretty good and looked like he was having a good time. The percussionist and his vocals were almost embarrassing. The bass sounded very muddy and one note like a bad subwoofer which the sound system and mix was more to blame for than the musician. In this small venue I believe they could have pulled off an "unplugged" set and it would have sounded better. Disappointed in the amount of time they played, the sound and the performance.
Happy to see Daniel Moore back on the decks!
Don't know if you heard already, but Neu Romance is ending. Yes, again! :) The last Neu Romance will be on Saturday April 13, which also happens to be its 10-year anniversary!
We're having the finale party at Five Star. It starts at 8pm on Saturday so people can come out even if they aren't late-night folks. We'll have the Neu Romance DJs playing classic NR tunes, as well as a special guest later on, DJ Herbert Holler from the Freedom Dance Party in NYC. Should be super fun! And like every other Neu Romance, there's no cover!
So I'm emailing all the old-school Kings and NR folks to get the word out. We should get everyone together for some reminiscing, hanging-out, and dancing! I'll have some videos and pictures of the old parties, Pink Beats and all the rest... including many which have never been seen before in public or anywhere else!
We would love to see your smiling face!
And be sure to check out Chico's amazing description of the long history of Neu Romance! (below)

I lack the expertise to offer a useful review. All I know is what I like and I like this production very much.
Nice pre show promo for Foghorn down in Carrboro tomorrow night! Get your old time on!
Thanks, kfadel07! It's been updated.
The North Raleigh Farmer's Market is now in Lafayette Village at 8450 Honeycutt Rd (same hours though!).
I saw "Apocalesque" in December at the Artscenter, also produced by Sirona with some of the same performers, and it was incredible!!! Nowhere else will you see this mix of incredible talent across so many performance and dance styles - hooping, tassle-twirling, aerial dancing, acrobatics, modern, belly dance, pole dancing, OMG! Seriously, don't miss it.

Overall the show was a great success. Luna's Lament proved why they are one of Charlotte's top bands, while Modena owned the stage with their own swagger, giving fans a glimpse of a few songs off of their new album. Both bands played high velocity songs that kept the crowd alive. Third on the list was The Tempered Machine. This was their "reunion" show, and it was pretty amazing. It was said they hadn't performed together in over 2 years, but it fely like they hadn't missed a beat. The drummer played a tiny Ludwig bop kit that produced a huge sound, while the bass player kept the crowd involved throughout the set. They were a great mix of Alternative hard rock mixed with some slower, bluesy tunes. The etherial sounds of Fields of Mars toned the show down a bit, but the the lead guitar and bass work really kept those guys tight.
I would definelty suggest goping to see all of these bands again. It was a great show, and I wasn't let down at all. For $5 it was totally worh my night.
