Phatlynx, Hoppie & Crispy's Bar-B-Q Tour Premiere 

When: Mon., Feb. 28, 5 p.m. 2011

They weren't born here, but lord bless 'em, Hoppie Newton and Crispy Bess got here as fast as they could. The fact that it's taken them a full five-plus years to turn their state pride (namely in the form of barbecue obsession) into a public access TV show should not be held against them. The show, Hoppie & Crispy's Bar-B-Q Tour, premieres this night with the promise of a multi-episode sojourn into the heart of the state's best (and worst) barbecue. Show up at 5 p.m. to eat some barbecue and catch a special sneak preview of the program; stay late to let Crispy fatten the deal with a set from his band Phatlynx. The group, an able crew of local music vets, formed lightheartedly as an all-fat-guy tribute to North Carolina native Link Wray, but their rock 'n' roll musical stylings are no joke. —Ashley Melzer
