See you at 8

at the rock show. We’ll be with all of your best friends waiting at the Lincoln Theater, purging bad vibes. Hit us up when you get there. Don’t forget your ticket, you need one of those to get in. No need for a shirt, we’re selling some there. Oh and leave the lighter- we got matchbooks! So stoked to see you there.

Tomorrow: DBB 12

image

Tomorrow night marks the first of WKNC’s two-part fundraiser, Double Barrel Benefit. Now in its 12th year, Double Barrel Benefit has helped to keep the station afloat while promoting what we care about most: the local music community. 

In order to keep up our efforts, we need your help. Consider attending either one or both nights of what we believe to be a stacked lineup, one we spent countless hours preparing in order to make your donations worthwhile. It’s the one time of the year that we reach out for your support (no telethons here), and we do it in what we consider to be the best way possible. So grab a friend, get some tickets, and meet us down at Lincoln Theatre tomorrow for night one. 

Tickets and more information are available here: http://wknc.org/dbb12/
