Dinner & a session with the Freelons

Less than a week after The Rosebuds and Lost in the Trees played Golden Belt to raise funds for Durham Arts Council, another enclave of popular local musicians has announced its own fundraiser for the grant-, class- and space-providing nonprofit: Grammy nominee Nnenna Freelon (who received a DAC grant in 1990 and has long supported the organization in return) will record a short session with The Beast—the eclectic hip-hop band fronted by her son, Pierce Freelon—Thursday, May 21, at the new Sound Pure Studios in Durham. The band and the singer will attempt to demystify the recording process in a panel with Sound Pure founder Todd Atlas, and dinner and wine donated by the nearby Piedmont will be served. Only 25 tickets will be sold for the intimate session. They're available for $100 each through DAC. All things considered, not a bad deal.
