THE PINHOOK, DURHAM

WEDNESDAY, JAN. 27–THURSDAY, JAN. 28 & WEDNESDAY, FEB. 3–THURSDAY, FEB. 4

The Pinhook, it seems, will survive. In December, Kym Register, the owner of the pioneering downtown Durham rock club, announced that an early partner in the business had let a major accounting error slip by in the venue's books for nearly a decade. That mistake meant that The Pinhook had less than a year to pay the North Carolina Department of Revenue $80,000. To date, a crowd-funding campaign has raised $33,000 for The Pinhook, and here come the reinforcements: For each of four nights, four unannounced bands will take to the venue's stage. Due to contractual terms, and in order to keep cool secrets, Register can't name the bands, but she does say each night will include a "significant headliner." Considering the caliber of acts that have played The Pinhook since 2008, the prospects are tantalizing. Each show will include a free piece of memorabilia to memorialize the night, along with custom posters for each gig. The Pinhook's balance comes due in November, but Register is hoping these shows help get close to paying it off early. "We don't want to be the place that's raising money all year," she says. 8 p.m., $25, 117 W. Main St., Durham, 919-667-1100, www.thepinhook.com. —Grayson Haver Currin
