some great stuff happening in these parts in the coming week... this weekend at UNC (tonight and tomorrow night) is Young Jean Lee's play The Shipment. monday night Touareg rock stars Tinariwen are at Memorial Hall, should be amazing. wonder if i can make it from there to Tortoise at the Cradle in time?
next week at Duke Dean and Britta are bringing their "13 Most Beautiful...Songs for Andy Warhol's Screentests", to Page Auditorium. local boy and drummer extraordinaire Lee Waters (you may have seen him with Camera Obscura, Essex Green, his own band Work Clothes, or heard him playing on Portastatic records!) is on board for that show as well.
Coming off an excellent OT win v Sabres last night (it always feels good to beat Buffalo, and you'd never know from the atmosphere in the RBC that one of the teams was essentially just playing for pride) 'Canes play NJ on saturday and will have rookie Justin Peters in goal (coming off his own win last weekend, in his first NHL appearance). We've lost Nicky Wallin and Matt Cullen to trades this week, sad though not surprising. Ray Whitney liable to be next, after the Olympics. Still, Carolina has not thrown in the towel and it's fun to watch some no-pressure hockey.
