three names make a great band

This is a very exciting weekend at The Pinhook, and pardon the fuck out of me for being so serious right off the bat. Pardon that shit.

Ok, I guess I’m not being so serious.

But seriously. Friday, October 16th, we are honored to host the 10th anniversary show of Cantwell, Gomez, and Jordan. This is going to be a really fun night, but more importantly it speaks to the staying-power, gall, and sheer awesomeness of the one of the Triangle’s most long-running musical outfits. When I moved here five years ago, they were one of the first bands I saw. I read their press like the bible, and their name has become iconic to me. They represent everything righteous and bold about the scene we have built (and are still building) here in Durham, Chapel Hill, and beyond. Their music is a mix of playfulness and menace, humor and terror, unswerving pop sensibilities and literally the most fucked-up stuff you ever heard. Add a dose of shit-hot chops (these people can play) and you’ve got the epitome of an Epic Local Band. Ten years running, let’s toast to ten more.

By the way, Maple Stave, Des Ark, and Clang Quartet open the show. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? This is going to destroy.

We’ve got a great weekend planned in other ways as well. Saturday’s Dance party promises to heat up what is apparently winter already, here in The D. DJs Tyler Hypnosis and Gonzo spin the hip-hop all night, with M1 Platoon jumping in to make the floor shake.


Love You People…THIS MUCH (arms stretching out ludicrously far),
