Fantastic article; as someone who moved to the area 15 years ago and missed the original SNZ as a "local" band, there's so much fantastic oral history collected here both of the band itself and the "scene" (for lack of a better term) back then.
There's also a related event coming up this Saturday, which I hope is OK to comment here:
The Kraken, “Chapel Hill’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Roadhouse,” will host a fundraiser for community radio station WCOM on Saturday, August 20, starting at 7PM.
Five musical acts have committed to perform.
Katharine Whalen, lead singer of the original Squirrel Nut Zippers, continues to make outstanding music solo and with several groups. The Milagro Saints play roots rock Americana with great original material as featured on their new album, Stranger Times. The Cosmic Country Band keeps alive the sound of Austin in the 1970s led by Lisa Rhodes who was there. Hank and Brendan, a Carrboro guitar and banjo duo, shatter preconceptions with music ranging from Yes to Reno & Smiley. From Carthage, Mama Molasses delivers soulful Americana music.
Additional artists may be announced as confirmed. Orange County’s Grilled Delights food truck will be there.
All donations will benefit WCOM, your all-volunteer non-profit community radio station.
The Kraken is located five miles west of Carrboro at the intersection of NC 54 and Dobson’s Crossroads Road.

Fascinating journalism, Barry. Thanks for taking us along with you.
Fantastic article. Carrboro/Chapel Hill's also got WCOM, a community-oriented low power FM station, with some open time slots if you have an idea for a show and an interest in learning.
Thanks so much, Brian, for the opportunity to share a few of the 2015 book crop from the Carolinas. It's the tip of the iceberg, as usual! Looking forward to checking out your litfic coverage.
Here's a link to that sample of Dhalgren, via an unetied recording session from narrator Stefan Rudnicki. It includes a picture of a page from the book, which should demonstrate why this is in quite the undertaking to translate into audio:
