Listen to Les Racquet's new CD here: http://lesracquet.bandcamp.com/album/whale…
Behind the Wheel is a great band to drink beers to. Toss a few back and let the music rock your bones. They keep the metal in the music without faking a false sense of being "brutal" like the younger bands coming up in the local scene.
Great band. Great music. Cool guys with a nack for throwing down and getting the crowd involved.
Do not miss this show! I saw Splintered Reality a few months back at King's Barcade. Definitely a good show. These guys are the only Industrial band that I have seen in Raleigh for ages.
Crystal Bright and the Silverhands being characterized as convoluted above is appropriate. But it does nothing to describe it. It's like a bunch of gypsy caberet imagineers on acid in disneyland (if it were designed by Tim Burton) playing world music, just not from this world.
That probably didn't help either but I was beguiled by the melodies conjured by Crystal and more than a little amused by the choices of instruments which included a saw. I had never seen or heard anything quite like it and originality goes a LONG way with me. Her version of "You are my Sunshine" incites abject despair and melancholy enough that you should hide the razor blades before listening to it. A+

BACK TO THE AT, the untold story of the Tar Heel sports scandal in fiction. Great!
An remains my choice as best Asian restaurant in the triangle. Kudos to the current chef for consistency and wonderful execution of this menu. Prices are very reasonable for this quality of dining; lunch is simply a bargain and a nice introduction to An, always a nice Bento box option as well as menu. In the evening, a full dinner with wine, appetizer and gratuity will run about $50/person total. The sushi is generous and uber-fresh. The Thai wings appetizer are another treat for two. My favorite entrees include duck curry, crab cakes, NC flounder, Japanese eggplant, but there's lots more. Perhaps the only entree I'd pass on would be the lamb, just because it hasn't lent itself to the inventive cooking here and there's so many other great choices. There's vegetarian and mild dishes for the spice-challenged. And for an unexpected decadence, the hot Macadamia cookies are made to order and melt in your mouth.
love the food and the service!
This play was a lot of fun. Chicklet & Berdine are perfectly cast and superbly played.
LOVE the products, and terrific service!
Indy knows how to pick 'em
Very good and innovative vegetarian food! Its more on the gourmet side than everyday food, but none the less most excellent.
This is a Carolina Music Awards pre-show and will be amazing!
This is, hands-down, the BEST pizza that I have had since living in NC on and off for the last 10 years. It's mind boggling that I didn't discover this until now.
Being from Long Island, NY, I have always detested any pizza place in North Carolina because the pizza simply didn't taste as good. Not only is the pizza delicious (thin crust style just like NY is supposed to be), but I was thrilled that they had cannoli!!! You can never find them down here! Like a pig, I ordered some tiramisu and cannoli. Also, I HIGHLY recommend their garlic knots, which are more like garlic fists because of their size. They are so yummy!
I will definitely have trouble staying away from this place ;)
junk is the heat
This event is not to be missed! It's the Solstice - longest day of the year - and this is a sure-way to get your summer rockin! I had the privilege of previewing this show at rehearsal and was blown away. There will be exotic animal performers: a panther dancing from the rafters, a magic crow, a body-painted lioness, and many many more. Think wild, spectacular, beautiful, racy, and classy: Everything from burlesque to aerial, modern to belly dance. Over a dozen acts, clocking in under 2 hours (with no extended raffle at the end, I was happy to hear). The perfect start (or finish) to the night!
Thanks for sharing the news about this wonderful event. Thanks to you this collaborative concert was a huge success. Check out all the choreographers work as previews on our Youtube page http://www.youtube.com/user/ncdancefestiva…
