WKNC Double Barrel Benefit with Luego, Jeff Crawford, Baobab, Magnolia Collective, Driftwood, Juan Huevos

When: Sat., Feb. 4, 12-5 p.m. 2012

Preludes to anniversaries are tough; you naturally need to save your biggest offerings for commemoration, when outsiders can validate internal achievement. That's the conundrum for the Double Barrel Benefit, the annual fundraiser for N.C. State's WKNC 88.1 FM that's now in its ninth year. Though past benefits have included heavy hitters such as the Mountain Goats, Megafaun and Polvo, this year's lineup lacks such a star. That's not a condemnation of quality, though: Between MAKE's proudly patient doom metal and The Future Kings of Nowhere's bustling acoustic rock, Friday moves with plenty of surprises. Saturday, meanwhile, boasts two of the area's best live acts—the danceable Heads on Sticks and the pristine The Kingsbury Manx. They bookend worthwhile upstarts Gross Ghost and Naked Gods. This year's benefit also incudes a day party and market at Tir Na Nog with seven bands playing from 1–5 p.m. on Saturday and several local art vendors. The market is free. The shows themselves cost $10, or $15 for both nights, and start at 9 p.m. —Grayson Currin

Price: $10 ($15 both shows)
