For the past fifty years, N.C. State's WKNC-88.1 FM has been pushing out tunes across the Triangle over its airwaves. The student-run station has long been one of the area's strongest supporters of local and independent music, and once a year it asks the community for a bit of support in return. That support is manifested in the Double Barrel Benefit, now in its fourteenth year, which is the biggest annual fundraiser for the station. Night one leans toward boisterous, dance-friendly fun, with sets from rapper Ace Henderson, Raleigh's stunning ZenSoFly, the dense electronica of Sand Pact, and DJ PayPal. Saturday's offerings are a little more varied, with the raucous honky-tonk rock of Sarah Shook and the Disarmers sitting atop a bill that includes the surfy pop-rock of See Gulls, Infinity Crush's gentle folk-pop, and Astro Cowboy's fuzzy lo-fi rock. —Allison Hussey

Correction: This piece incorrectly identified Ace Henderson as being from Durham. He is based in Raleigh.
