Live: Double Negative, Birds of Avalon, Whatever Brains, The Plague

Double Negative, Birds of Avalon, Whatever Brains, The Plague

A House, Raleigh

Saturday, Jan. 21

"We are The Plague," exclaimed Hank Williams, the long-time Raleigh concert promoter, nearly breathless after the premiere of his new band, The Plague, "and you're dead." He was almost right: Saturday's show at a house somewhere in Raleigh was a sardines-and-sweat affair, crowding revolving-door groups of a few hundred into a living room and in a stairwell to see three of the city's best bands—Whatever Brains, Double Negative and Birds of Avalon—and one of its newest, The Plague. The steam within the tiny living room was nearly asphyxiating. People slid off of one another and into the floor, only to be lifted high above the pit to crowd surf and bump into Christmas lights. Between the short sets, the masses spilled out of the front and back entrances, smoking, sweating and steeling themselves with the cool February air in preparation for the next round. A perfect night. [Photos by D.L. Anderson]
