NC Beer & Band Festival

When: Sat., May 12, 3-8 p.m. 2012

Unlimited samples of Carolina beers courtesy of breweries such as Duck Rabbit, Mother Earth and Highland more than justify the price of admission to this all-day shindig. Consider the inviting selection of locally sourced music a welcome bonus, then: Chapel Hill's Hobex is a soul-rock institution, with vibrant harmonies and seductive bass lines making their now-infrequent performances worth seeking out. The thick rhythms of Asheville-based Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band should prove a winning complement. They lean more toward funk, pairing a Prince-like inclination for R&B-inflected rock with a Sly touch for sexy rhythm. Simplified, Clay Pigeons and Mac & Juice also play. —Jordan Lawrence

Price: $25-30
