WKNC's DOUBLE BARREL BENEFIT

A dozen years ago, N.C. State's student-run radio station, WKNC-FM, launched the Double Barrel Benefit to do the things its paltry school-supplied budget could not—boost the signal at 88.1, improve studio infrastructure, better educate its aspiring DJs and programmers. In the years since, the event's aimed to evolve, introducing new updates and acts that piqued and re-piqued audience interest. A few years ago, for instance, WKNC split the barrels, staging one show in Carrboro one weekend and another in Raleigh the next. This year, the station introduces a new (and, honestly, overdue) tactic in turning the second gig into a righteous hip-hop showcase. For the first weekend, though, elemental indie rock rules the roster. The bill's four acts—Des Ark, Schooner, Museum Mouth, and Naked Naps—share a pronounced strain of emotional vulnerability, whether detailing the terrors of childhood abuse or the worries of relationship instability. They uniformly push those feelings forward with gusto and are some of the best rock acts the state has to offer. —Grayson Haver Currin
