Double Negative, Birds of Avalon, Whatever Brains, The Plague
A House, Raleigh
Saturday, Jan. 21
"We are The Plague," exclaimed Hank Williams, the long-time Raleigh concert promoter, nearly breathless after the premiere of his new band, The Plague, "and you're dead." He was almost right: Saturday's show at a house somewhere in Raleigh was a sardines-and-sweat affair, crowding revolving-door groups of a few hundred into a living room and in a stairwell to see three of the city's best bands—Whatever Brains, Double Negative and Birds of Avalon—and one of its newest, The Plague.
