Brickside Festival
Duke Coffeehouse, Durham
This is the second non-annual Brickside Festival (the first was in 2012), sponsored by the Duke Coffeehouse & WXDU.

The lineup is a fascinating mix of great local bands and some out-of-towners whom I'm remarkably indifferent to. Here's the current version of the schedule:

14:00 MIDNIGHT PLUS ONE
15:00 SOLAR HALOS
16:00 JEFFREY LEWIS
17:00 JULIANNA BARWICK
[18:00 - 20:30 sound break]
20:30 DES ARK
22:00 KOOLEY HIGH
23:30 DAN DEACON
01:00 BATHS

I don't know what a "Sound Break" is but y'all can certainly stand to give your ears a rest every 4 hours or so, so good for them. You can ride the mechanical bull during that period, either before or after dinner.

Bloodsoaked, Morose Vitality, Grooms of the Stool
The Maywood, Raleigh
Peter is getting ready to take Bloodsoaked on one last European tour, but apparently after that, he's pulling the plug on his long-running classic oldschool Death Metal band. This is your last local chance to see them, in fact.
