At noon today, I'll be on WUNC FM's The State of Things with Frank Stasio, talking music in North Carolina with my counterpart from The News & Observer, David Menconi. In case you were wondering, David and I get along just fine these days. The rest of the show, which is the last installment of TSOT's All Music Week, features The Willie Painter Band and the omnipresent Betsy Harris, a Chapel Hill club-goer who was the subject of a fantastic Chapel Hill News story by Jesse James Deconto this week.
Also, in stream-of-consciousness-style apologies to 15 newish locals who should have been mentioned but, at least in my memory, weren't: The Strugglers, The Foreign Exchange, Spider Bags, The Kingsbury Manx, Whatever Brains, Impossible Arms, Tyler Hipnosis, Juan Huevos, In the Year of the Pig, I Was Totally Destroying It, Polvo (who count!), The Love Language, Gross Ghost, The Trousers and Lonnie Walker. I love you, too, so I got you this.
