Pinecone’s Down Home Concerts at the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts kicks off their new season this Friday night with North Carolina’s own Grammy award winning Carolina Chocolate Drops.
We didn’t miss this bit of news, but were just caught up too much in the Hopscotch whirlwind to post it. It’s great to see that not only are tech companies like Red Hat and Citrix coming to downtown, they are bringing culture and attitude with them.
Here we go. One of our most favorite weekends of the year in Downtown Raleigh starts early Thursday afternoon with a few day parties around the city and kicks into high gear on Thursday nights in clubs all across the downtown grid.

Electronic music, slowly gaining its grip on popular music, has been slow to stick in the Raleigh area, despite past shows in the area at Berkeley and other venues. Moog and Hopscotch have helped.

Wouter “Wally” De Backer, aka Gotye will float into Raleigh’s Downtown Amphitheatre on October 12th with Missy Higgins & Jonti and all the young girls will come screaming.
King Mez is one of those rare young talents that comes along in Raleigh’s hip hop community that we are bound to lose to the higher powers in the music industry. We won’t call this a send off party, but it might be close.
As part of the PineCone Down Home Series, Grammy Award winners, The Carolina Chocolate Drops, will come to Meymandi Concert Hall in support of their new album, Leaving Eden.
In July, Neko Case will return to our city, but this time under the night sky at the outdoor amphitheater at the North Carolina Museum of Art.
Another month, another free DiggUp Tapes show at Kings Barcade. This time, it’s all out-of-towners coming into Downtown Raleigh to rock out for free for you guys.
Some bands make music that is more enjoyable to listen to in the WInter than in the Summer. Many others are the reciprocal. But, there are a fair number of bands and musicians that are able to create records that make each season of the year more pleasant.
The Antlers and Yellow Ostrich put together a night of beautiful music at King’s Barcade.
