Raleigh Rumble
  • Raleigh Rumble

SLIM'S—Vintage bikes roam Raleigh (and Durham Sunday morning at The Federal) this weekend thanks to the third annual Raleigh Rumble. The weekend's music features rockabilly grooves courtesy of The Straight 8s. They range from the Cramps style of "Mean Go Getter" to the surf inflections of "Ann Bowman." Adding to the fun are noisy garage-punkers the Makebelieves, whose gritty chunk sounds like the Stooges giving New Bomb Turks a beatdown. Also, Skullbuckle. The rock show starts at 8 p.m., but the rumble starts Friday. For more, see —Chris Parker
