Okay, late post, but if anyone sees this today or over the weekend… three questions if you please.
1. We are going to be in Chapel Hill from Feb. 26 to March 7, and I’m beyond psyched. Can’t wait to eat some Pepper’s, waste time/write at Davis Library and see us dismantle Dook. However, we’re hitting a snag on housing. There’s four of us, and in a perfect world, we’d like to rent a two bedroom place within very quick walking distance of uptown. We have a place we can get, but it’s not ideal and doesn’t seem like it offers much “outside time” for Lucybeans. Any suggestions? Besides craigslist?
2. One of my oldest, bestest friends is putting together a party in Manhattan that promises to be a fun celebration of southern culture for tourism purposes. He’s looking for a band that would be a good match: something somewhat hip, alternative bluegrass, fun… any ideas, or people to call?
3. Speaking of bands, a reader emailed with a specific, nagging question. I’ll let him say it in his own words:
I saw the Beastie Boys at the Raleigh Civic Center on Nov. 10th of ’92, and the opening acts are the source of my inquiry. I am almost positive they were Rollins Band & Da Lench Mob. The most credible Beastie Boys site out there, BeastieMania.com, has Rollins Band and Cypress Hill listed as openers in their gigography section. Do you know how I can pose the question and maybe get a response from someone who also saw the show (I am trying to target a Raleigh area group of readers)?
I have these occasional bits of my past band-seeing experiences that stick in my craw as well, and know the feeling of not being able to solve my minutiae. Anyone see the show in question?
As always, have a wonderful weekend!
