2nd annual Cherry Bounce Fest, Oct. 18-24

with one comment

Get ready to gear up because like Shakori Hills, this post is going to be a long one. poster 11

This week-long Raleigh festival is named for a drink that an inn owner, Joel Lane, served to men who were searching for the site of N.C.’s state capital. Apparently this drink was so fantastic that it persuaded the powers that be that the place where the inn was located (which was what is now Raleigh) would be the destined site instead. Check out the full story and drink recipe here.

The artist lineups are almost completely local and it’s affordable as admission is free three nights and $5 the other four. Indy Week’s Scan points out that the festival has expanded by five days since it’s inaugural year and David Menconi’s On the Beat notes that this year that conveniently most of the venues are indoor since last year’s event was rather wet.

There’s only one stage a night so no worrying about trekking across muddy fields to catch another local favorite. Here’s the complete schedule:

  1. Hey! Didn’t know if you heard about Deer Tick playing a free show in Raleigh today. I like these guys a lot. They’re playing at the Local 506 tonight too, if anyone’s interested who didn’t make it to the day show.
    Here’s information about today’s show @ Schoolkids Records
