Bandages, The Davidians, Allergy
Neptunes, Raleigh
When the amazing NCHC band Double Negative broke up, their members ended up forming two new bands, Bandages & Davidians. Davidians retained more of the Double Negative DNA, whereas Bandages reminds me more of guitarist Scott Williams's earlier, more metallic band Daddy.

The Avett Brothers
PNC Arena, Raleigh
This is that show they announced, with great fanfare, like 18 months ago. I wonder if it ever sold out. Do people still lose their shit over the Avett Brothers?

The Sex Police
Cat's Cradle, Carrboro
There are some really nice guys (and talented musicians) in this band, but I was over white-boy funk by around '91 and my feelings about the genre haven't really mellowed over time.
