Pipe, Some Army, Shirlette, Midnight Plus One, Daniel Bachman
The Pinhook, Durham
This is a FREE early-voting rally, and it starts at 2pm because we want people to shuttle back and forth between the show and the Durham County Board of Elections, which has MOVED to the corner of Roxboro & Parrish.

The full lineup is Pipe, Shirlette Ammons, Some Army, Midnight Plus One, Daniel Bachman, Hammer No More the Fingers, Soon, DJ Direwolf. There will be FREE Lilly's Pizza to however many people get there before it's all gone.

The show is sponsored by WXDU and Democracy NC. If for some terrible reason you can't make it to the Pinhook in person, the show will also be simulcast on WXDU at 88.7FM & wxdu.org.

Charli XCX
Cat's Cradle, Carrboro
I haven't paid enough attention to be able to differentiate young UK pop/soul singer Charli XCX from, say, FKA Twigs, but Matt Park (ex-Veelee) went to see her the other night & came away raving about the show.
