Summer brings music festivals galore to American cities, small and big. Saturday brings a small version to Downtown Raleigh's Kings Barcade. From tamales to honky tonk, you'll have the chance to taste it all. One of our favorites, the local honky tonk superband, Tonk, will start out the TonkMeat festival on Saturday at Kings Barcade.
The mini-fest will start out on the sidewalk in front of Kings on Saturday, June 16 at about 7:00pm with beer, wine and Tamales (from Posh Nosh Catering). Tonk will be playing an early set on the stage inside Kings, at about 8:30. Other musical acts will follow after Tonk, including but not limited to Sharkquest, The Whom (our friends that make up the famous band Motocaster, plus Paul Siler, playing “Live At Leeds” era Who songs) and Benji Hughes and his band.
The first 80 people or so that show up at 7pm-ish will eat tamales for free with purchase of a ticket to the show. After that, it's pay as you go!
