Last night WKNC took over Friday Night Request Rock & Chainsaw to bring you live coverage of night 1 of the Double Barrel Benefit #6 from the Pour House in downtown Raleigh. The show was a success, a massive sellout with a tremendous crowd and kickass music. As the show will more than likely sellout tonight as well, we will once again be broadcasting the entire show live (trumping Saturday Night Soul and R&B and D-Cutta’s 2.0 Show).
Broadcast starts after the Soulful Renaissance and will air until the completion of the concert. If you can’t get to the Pour House, feel free to rock on with us tonight over your radio or internet connection.
Doors open at 8pm and get there early as there is a limited number of tickets available at the door. The show starts at 9pm.
