Tag: Coalition To Unchain Dogs
This week I sat down for yet another Local Beat Mini Exclusive as there will once again be no normally scheduled Local Beat (due to baseball programming). Rob Koegler and Jason Kutchma came in to chat about a really interesting and unique concert happening this Friday evening at the ETC Auditorium of the North Carolina School of Science and Math titled “Deliver Me From Nowhere- A Tribute to Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska.” A collaboration of different musicians from Red Collar, Midtown Dickens, COW, Mount Moriah, and the Rosewood Bluff are coming together to play the entire album in it’s entirely. The show is only $10 and all proceeds are going to benefit the Coalition to Unchain Dogs and the Southern Coalition for Social Justice. The concert begins at 9:30 p.m. though a free showing of Terrence Malick’s 1973 film, Badlands, will begin at 7:30 p.m. The screening of the movie is free of charge.
In this Local Beat Mini Exclusive, Jay, Rob, and I chatted about the bands playing the show, the charities, and the reason behind throwing this concert. Jay also brought in his acoustic guitar and a harmonica and played two tracks from Nebraska for us which you can listen to in the music player to the left.
Take a listen to the podcast below and feel free to download the covers at the Local Beat ReverbNation page.
Saturday at Durham Central Park was the third annual Music For Fences show put on by the Coalition to Unchain Dogs. Playing the show was Rey Norteno, The Kinksmen, Regina Hexaphone, and Superchunk. The weather was beautiful and everyone had a wonderful time (pups included!). Below are some pictures from the day:
Tonight on the Local Beat looks to be a good time with three fantastic interviews lined up.
At 5pm, Carrboro natives Veelee will be joining me to promote their show this evening at the Local 506 with Free Electric State and Embarrassing Fruits. The show at the 506 tonight starts at 9:30pm and tickets are $7. They will also be playing some tunes live on the air which you will not want to miss.
At 6pm Hailey Queen of the Coalition to Unchain Dogs will be joining us at WKNC alongside Sara Bell of Durham based folk rock band Regina Hexaphone to discuss tomorrow’s third annual Music For Fences in Durham Central Park. Regina Hexaphone will be playing alongside Rey Norteno, The Kinksmen, and Superchunk. The show is from 4pm-10pm, $8 in advance and $10 at the door. All proceeds from the show benefit the Coalition to Unchain Dogs, which is a non-profit organization set up to raise money to build fences for chained dogs.
The last hour of the show is dedicated to Midtown Dickens who are having an album release party for their new record Lanterns, tonight at the Duke Coffeehouse with Mount Moriah and Des Ark (the show starts at 9pm and is FREE). Founding members of the band Kym Register and Catherine Edgerton are coming in to talk about the creation of Lanterns, gossip about their new band members, and recollect the past 2.5 years since their last album release. We will also be performing live unreleased tracks from the album as a sneak preview of whats to come this evening in Durham.
So tune into the Local Beat this evening. 5pm-8pm every Friday! If you don’t have a radio or are out of the area, listen online!
