Double barrel benefit for WKNC 

If--thanks to company Christmas parties for the past month--you haven't been able to catch any of the new area acts you either keep reading or hearing about, WKNC 88.1 has done the work for you.

During two smoky, sweaty and smiling nights downtown at Kings, just show up and listen as nine of the state's best new bands (and the very fine We VS The Shark, up from Athens) do the rock thing in the second annual WKNC Double Barrel Benefit. Night One opens with the mellow stylings of Kapow! Music, followed by the Big Star-meets-Flaming Lips analog psychedelic style of TV Knife. The night ends with the a powerful rock 'n' roll three-peat: Athens' We VS The Shark, followed by the classic-fired concoction El Boa (featuring members of The Cherry Valence, STRANGE, The Weather and The Dynamite Brothers) and Winston-Salem's guitar wielding psych-space cadets, All Astronauts.

And if you can still hold your head up after the fun of Night One, Barrel Night Two offers N.C. State campus favorites American Aquarium in the first slot. The heavy math-ers of Monsonia will be on deck, followed by the sounds-like-Omaha firepower of The Prayers & Tears of Arthur Digby Sellers. Charlotte's Kink-speakin' The Talk will hit the stage sometime after midnight, with Wilmington's angular '80s subscribers, The Fashion Brigade, closing the doors. Now that school is back in, it's time to get a real education.
