I have never NEVER been disappointed by a Loners show. Rock Duo. Plain and simple. "The Loners have a unique history in the Raleigh music scene. They can be considered the diamond in the rough (the rough being the closing of Kings Barcade in downtown Raleigh in the spring of 2007). After reuniting to play the last show at Kings, the band decided to stay together because of the outpouring of support they receive from the show. “ – B Berry of WKNC
The Huguenots are "invitingly familiar, as warm and fuzzy as your favorite sweater or treasured vinyl crackling underneath a needle’s touch. Part of that familiarity comes from the band’s thirst for short, accessible, guitar-driven gems—the 3.5-minute pop song, naturally. The band’s quick bursts of energy give it plenty of charm. They’ve got tightly coiled energy to offer, too: A little like big city bands The Strokes and The Libertines, The Huguenots’ spring-loaded riffs and artful come-ons translate into well-played, sonic sloppiness that turns those pop sing-alongs into would-be riots.” —Kathy Justice of Independent Weekly
Also at the pub this Thursday is the brewer series. Held every Thursday, the Tir Na nOg Brewer Series features great North Carolina craft beer, authentic music from the Triangle, and highlights other local businesses that makes Raleigh unique!
This month we’ve got Aviator Brewing Company to join us, along with Crumb Bakeryy, and there will be shirts from Apheele Creations. Aviator will be releasing their Belgium Saison. YUM.
WKNC and Tir Na nOg are happy to bring you this FREE, 21 and up event. Meet the brewers at 9 p.m. Music starts at 10 p.m. Grab yourself a tasty local brew (they’re on special!) and enjoy some local live music.
