In the spring 2016, Durham's Ponysaurus Brewing released its Don't Be Mean to People saison as a way to push back against HB 2. The brewery hosted a day-long concert to benefit last spring, and these days, Don't Be Mean to People is a staple

This fall, the beer's mission gets re-energized with two days of music at Ponysaurus. On October 19 and 20, the brewery hosts another benefit for the ACLU of North Carolina with an all-star crew of North Carolinians. Friday night features Rafiq Bhatia, electro-pop from Body Games, hip-hop from ZenSoFly and Kooley High, plus The Dynamite Brothers and an expanded, seventeen-piece version of The Hot at Nights called The Hot at Nights Orchestra.

On Saturday, Wye Oak headlines a bill that includes Skylar Gudasz, Spider Bags, Pie Face Girls, The Muslims, Eugene Chadbourne, and more, including an acoustic set from Superchunk. Saturday's lineup also features a reunited Work Clothes, the long-dormant project of Jenny and Lee Waters, and the well-loved metal band Tooth, which has slowly returned to more activity this year.

Regular two-day tickets cost $40, with a VIP option running $150. Tickets and more info, including a schedule, are available here.
