This is a great example of what happens when you have a city council making decisions about the entertainment biz, it's simply not in their field of expertise. To think that you are going to get a better or even as good of turn out for a paid event as you did for the one that you have been giving away for free is ridiculous. And who thought that people are going to pay $30 to see indie bands on the regular has obviously never has been to a spot like the Cat's Cradle where you can see those acts for half that price.
Let the big beer company name the venue and take advantage of the corporate money like every city that has any sense does.That way maybe we can have free concerts at the the new amphitheater.
The NCABC commission telling us that the the beer company can't be the naming sponsor sounds like some old school bible belt BS to me.
Raleigh is just getting going downtown, let's not ruin the progress by trying to make a buck on everything there city council.
Amphitheater or no amphitheater, BRING BACK THE FREE SHOWS IN PARK!!!!
This is one of the most stirring films I have ever seen. I caught a viewing of this at the 2010 Telluride Film Festival and it was unquestionably my vote for the best film of the fest, against the likes of King's Speech and Black Swan. It deals with the gray areas of morality that are the products of war like no war film I had ever seen prior. Find the time to see this important and moving film.
