Event Details

The Black Bananas (Drag City):
"Indie vet Jennifer Herrema is a proponent of the saying: If you don't like what they're saying about you, change the conversation. When listeners didn't quite take to JJ Got Live RaTX, the last album from her metal/psych-folk act (and Royal Trux spinoff) RTX, she simply rebranded the group as Black Bananas. "Drag City owner Dan Koretzky and I thought: If it just stays RTX, will there be any kind of fresh look at it?", Herrema explained over the phone last week. "'Fuck it, people are stupid. Let's just change the name.'" Rad Times Xpress IV, the first album under the new Black Bananas moniker" - scored a 7.8 on Pitchfork:

Magik Markers (Drag City):
 Drowned in Sound's Samuel Strang says "the Connecticut noise merchants put on an uncharacteristic performance riddled with poignant half-cut confessions that verge close to convention seeping in to their familiarly deformed avant-garde brutality as nine blunt bullet blows." 
DWARR (Drag City) - Cancelled

The Pinhook

The Pinhook has become Durham’s premiere venue for live music, excellent DJ’s, basic chilling, and collaborative creative events. Here’s what we got:

- Weekends of Musical Mayhem- featuring the best bands from The Triangle, North Carolina, and well beyond.

- Weeknight Monthlies like Open Mics, Open Jams, Karaoke, Trivia, and DJ sets.


- Pool, Tekken, Ms. Pac-Man, Galaga, Backgammon, Scrabble, etc. (and people with whom to play these games)

- CHEAP. DRINKS. $3 Tallboys, $2 PBR, $1.50 Schlitz, $4 Well Drinks Monday-Wednesday.

- Nightly specials – the perfect way to make cheap drinks even cheaper.


But the most important thing we have is YOU. The Pinhook is YOUR place. We believe that communities thrive when there is a public place for their citizens to be themselves, whether on stage or on a barstool, relaxing or rocking out. For Durham and the Triangle, the Pinhook is that place.

You gotta make your own fun in life, but we’re here to help.
