Hammer No More the Fingers
The Pinhook, Durham
This is a going-away party for local music superfan Eric Chen, whose quiet presence at hundreds of shows, many with video camera in hand, will indeed be missed around these parts.

Midnight Plus One, See Gulls, Ye Olde Shoppe
Cat's Cradle Back Room, Carrboro
Show of the week. Midnight Plus One and See Gulls are two of the best angular/post-indie bands in town [and bonus, they're both woman-powered]. And the Cradle's Back Room space is the nicest small room in the Triangle.

Bob Log III, The Pork Torta
The Pinhook, Durham
Bob Log pioneered the entire weirdo lo-fi postapocalyptic blues genre back in the 90s with his band Doo Rag, and he hasn't really wavered from it since then. One look at him in his crash helmet with built-in microphone & you'll know what I'm talking about.

Wesley Wolfe, T0W3RS, Cat Be Damned
Tir Na Nog, Raleigh
The longer Wes Wolfe's hair gets, the more obvious it is that he & Derek Torres of T0W3RS are separated-at-birth goth brothers.

Not enough for you? There are fun interactive maps to the clubs via the Google Maps API.

Other ways to get this info:

1) The handheld-optimized version of the site, or a new simplified text version of this page, for you lo-fi fans.

2) An RSS feed. AND! A weekly oggcast! (OK, it's just my WXDU radio show.)

3) An iCal feed of all the listed shows, updated nightly.

4) This listing is posted once or twice a week to ch-scene, the mailing list which is itself a mirror of alt.music.chapel-hill.

5) For you web 2.0 fans, we have a facebook app *and* a Twitter account.

6) This amuses me:
