Snowpocalypse of 2014, Picks, Mardi Gras, Projects

So we made it through Snowpocalypse of 2014. What a dud of a storm that was. Regardless, it is cold out and it will be good to warm up with some good music, art, a movie, or book.

This is the kind of weekend that pits our local artists with some strong national acts. Amy Ray and Jason Isbell shows are sold out. The musical, Once, still has seats available at DPAC. 

No worries, there is still plenty to check out. A few shows of note are:

Friday Night –

Strings Attached Concerts to Benefit Urban Ministries
Catie Curtis is playing at St Philips Episcopal Church Durham Showtime 8:00. Tickets at $15 in advance, $20 day of the show and $8 for children.  Refreshments, including sweet and savory snacks, along with water, soda, wine and fresh brewed beer from Bull City Burger and Brewery, are available. All profits benefit Urban Ministries of Durham.

Saturday Night:

Durham’s Mardi Gras Kick Off Party at Pinhook 9:00 PM FREE!
Durham’s Bulltown Strutters, that little eccentric “band that could”, is hosting their third annual Mardi Gras Parade. With two years under their belt, the Bulltown Strutters are ready to take this event up a notch, from the small spirited sidewalk invasion, to a bonafide community event.  An Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for permits, insurance, bands, and administrative costs just kicked off.
