Local benefits raising money to fight HB 2 continue to pop up, and there's a great new one on deck in Durham. Next Thursday, May 12, John Darnielle will perform a solo set as the Mountain Goats at The Pinhook for a show titled "FU HB 2." Loamlands, the excellent folk rock outfit of Pinhook owner Kym Register
, takes the opening slot.
The show will benefit the Southern Vision Alliance, an activist network that helps develop infrastructure and leadership among and within youth-oriented social justice organizations. Tickets to the show are $30, and they go on sale tomorrow at 10 a.m. here
