Around this time last summer, Five Points' Bickett Gallery was caught in a storm with the Raleigh Police Department and city-wide noise ordinances that caused the gallery to move its ambitious month-long arts-and-music festival, "
23 Hours ," indoors and out of earshot of the hundreds of houses surrounding the space. This summer, the living is busy and easy for the gallery, which continues to use its indoor space without incident several nights a week for intimate jazz and rock shows amidst its accomplished showings. To celebrate, Bickett will throw its 8th Annual Luau on its back porch, complete with local pop favorites Schooner and local soul wonders The Choosy Beggars indoors, a vast mural painting outdoors, and a heap of food (including Ana Vizcarra's South American ribs). Enjoy Bickett's 8th Annual Luau in this, its fourth year of business. Visit www.bickettgallery.com.
