THE GREAT COVER UP

KINGS, RALEIGH

WEDNESDAY, JAN. 6–SATURDAY, JAN. 9

For many of the last 17 years, Kings has attempted to stockpile good karma for the next calendar cycle through The Great Cover Up, a weekend-long fete of often one-off cover acts formed by temporary confederations of local musicians. Kings packs the club for a few consecutive nights, donates the door take to charity and provides moments ("Remember that time they were Fugazi? Or The Damned? Or No Doubt?") that people still speak of fondly a decade later. This year, Kings has added a "bonus night" on Wednesday, extending The Cover Up to a half-week spree and adding another chance to raise cash for causes such as supporting victims of domestic abuse and sexual assault (InterAct), general community goodwill (The Beehive Collective) and the next generation of local musicians (Kidznotes). So let the speculation begin: Which rock gods and goddesses—and potential rap crews—will climb the Kings stairs to glory this year? 8:30 p.m., $7$10, 14 W. Martin St., Raleigh,
