Live: Willie Nelson & the Family Band Play the Hits in the Heat and Haze

Posted By on Wed, Jul 26, 2017 at 2:42 PM

Willie Nelson & The Family Band Koka Booth Amphtheatre July 14, 2017 With temperatures hovering around the hundred-degree mark, eighty-four-year-old William Hugh Nelson causally walked onstage without introduction to kick off his latest appearance at Cary’s Koka Booth Amphitheatre.

Reese McHenry first approached Spider Bags’ Dan McGee about making music together more than half a decade ago. McHenry, then, was the driving force behind garage-country outfit The Dirty Little Heaters, and she and McGee only casually knew each other.

Warp '17 Detour Tuesday, July 4, 5 p.m.–midnight, $25–$30 Motorco Music Hall, Durham If you stroll down to Fullsteam or Surf Club for a Fourth of July beer on Tuesday, you might look around and find yourself wondering, "Since when is there a Hot Topic on Rigsbee Avenue?" There isn't one, but there will be an invasion of six bands from Warped Tour, the mall-punk festival that has been skating around the country on sneaker money for twenty-two summers.
