FU HB 2: THE MOUNTAIN GOATS, LOAMLANDS; STAND AGAINST HB 2

Circuit 4, Department of Justice, NASCAR: How much worse will the fallout over House Bill 2 get for Pat McCrory and his immoral army in the next few weeks? Two local benefits will raise money to support the fight and the communities that the state's conservatives endanger. On Thursday, the Mountain Goats' John Darnielle returns to The Pinhook's stage for "FU HB 2," a sharply named benefit for the Southern Vision Alliance, a nonprofit network of organizations working to empower youth-led social justice organizations. Loamlands, which has activist and Pinhook boss Kym Register at its helm, opens with crackling, electrified folk rock. On Sunday in Saxapahaw, an all-day affair presents a massive slate of locals raising their voices against HB 2. From Southern Culture on the Skids and The Veldt to Tres Chicas and The dB's, twenty-two acts will offer songs against the administration, indoors and outdoors. That's plenty of bang for your buck, and all of those bucks are going to support Equality NC. Tickets are tight for both shows, so don't be surprised to find yourself on a wait list. —Allison Hussey
