Tonight: The Love Language vs. The Foreign Exchange vs. the weather

The word is that Chapel Hill's The Love Language and Durham's The Foreign Exchange have been practicing feverishly (and with many cans of the Bull) this week for tonight's Red Bull Soundclash, during which both bands will cover songs by their counterpart and offer themed rearrangements of their own material. Reggae The Love Language? Cockrock The Foreign Exchange? That's the sort of stuff you can expect from two of the Triangle's best bands at 8 p.m. beside The Hibernian on Glenwood Ave.

"Outside?" you might be asking. "But what about this weather?"

Don't worry, says Audrey Adair, a communications specialist with Red Bull. Yesterday, the stage crew erected a large tent—the type of thing you'd see at a mid-sized wedding or a South by Southwest day party—around the stages. Adair says the space should hold between 700 and 800 people for the concert, which will go on as planned, despite what's happening outside of the white plastic walls shown at right. Doors open at 7 p.m. The music starts at 8 p.m. and is set to end around 10:15 p.m. DJ Lord of Public Enemy spins. It's free, but—given that 412 people have already RSVP'd on Facebook—you had best get there early. And don't forget Tigallo's Two Step Thursday across Glenwood after the concert.

Oh, and my prediction as to which band will handle the challenge best? The Foreign Exchange, without apologies.
