good stuff this week

Pat Benatar
Carolina Theater, Chapel Hill
I saw Pat Benatar a couple of years ago, the last time she played the Carolina. She puts on one hell of a show, I'll tell you that. Pat has taken care of her vocal cords, that's for sure. If you have even the tiniest bit of nostalgia for her music -- or if you just want to see a great rockshow -- don't overlook this one.
