Weekend Shots!

It’s hard to say what’s king around here—college hoops or music. But, when the two are simultaneously in full-bloom the Triangle couldn’t be more magical. This is one of those weekends and it starts tonight with the three major college b-ball teams (Duke, NC State, UNC) kicking-off their seasons, with great music acts playing in their respective cities.

This past year has found Durham’s tastemakers extending their dreams of turning the city’s nightlife into a dance haven, so there’s no better way to tear the club up and round-out 2011 than with Big Freedia’s booty-poppin’, New Orleans bounce tonight at Casbah.

On Saturday afternoon in Raleigh, The North Carolina Brewer’s Guild brings beer galore to the Lincoln Theatre along with several amazing bands, but go heavy on the music and light on the beers because you’ll still have plenty of time to make it to Chapel Hill to help comeback kids, Bombadil, celebrate their new LP, All That the Rain Promises. Play ball!
