Charlie Daniels Band, Marshall Tucker Band, The Outlaws, Pure Prairie League, Poco
Koka Booth Amphitheatre, Cary
Charlie Daniels started his career as a pot-smoking anti-war southern redneck hippie outlaw type, but nowadays he's a bitter old right-winger. Somebody in his camp decided to name this otherwise super-ultra-middle-of-the-road lite-country showcase "Carolina Uprising" and nobody seems to be able to explain exactly why.

The Producers, The Fabulous Knobs
Pour House, Raleigh
I remember seeing The Producers back in their (regional power pop) heyday, the early 1980s. I'm kind of astonished that they've soldiered on for another 30+ years since then.
