an important birthday

Damn but does it seem like a lot of people around here were born in July. One of those people is our good friend and main dude about this place, Chaz Martenstein. Chaz owns and operates Bull City Records, is a major player at Bull City Headquarters, and most importantly works the door here at the Pinhook twice a week. Chaz you are living god.

Anyway, Friday, July 17th, Chaz is throwing a birthday party at the Pinhook. You should come wish the man well, and stay for the incredible line-up of bands. All the way from Minneapolis, Pretty Boy Thorson & The Fallen Angels kick things off at 10 with an off-the-rails Uncle Tupelo vibe. They are “rollicking”, I’d say, and have a repertoire of important songs about drinking and hamburgers.

Durham’s Dry Heathens continue the awesomeness. These guys sound like they’re one step away from robbing a convenience store so they can buy chainsaws, but actually they are nice guys and Friends of Ours.

Finally, if you’ve never seen Raleigh’s Whatever Brains, DO NOT MISS THIS SHOW. Jagged American rock with an undercurrent of awesome menace, WB is one of the best bands in this area. Perhaps THE best, depending on who you ask. (Me. Ask me.)
