Hopscotch Music Festival 2016 – Day 2

Hopscotch Music Festival 2016 Day 2 – Friday, September 9th, 2016 Downtown Raleigh I am really proud of myself for my Hopscotch 2016 – Day 1 recap. I paid attention, took insightful notes, and came away with a solid piece. Then I threw all that out the window for Day 2 as I simply meandered about the city with no real destination in mind.

311 performing in Raleigh, North Carolina at Red Hat Amphitheater 2016

311 @ Red Hat

311 with Matisyahu Sunday, July 24th, 2016 - Red Hat Amphitheater It was a busy weekend for the staff of RDU Music with two shows in two days. The best part was that each show was planted firmly on the opposite end of the musical spectrum. From the depressive, pummeling noise-metal spectacle of Dragged into Sunlight to the good-time, rockin' alterna-funk style of LA-by-way-of-Omaha's 311. What a time to be alive.

Some 20 years later, I find myself wishing that I could relive those halcyon days when the malt liquor flowed freely and 311 was  bringing grassroots for your mom. Well, greater Raleigh area, we are […]

Refused: The Shape of Punk Remains

The year of 1998 provided a plethora of amazing albums from all genres of music.  "Aeroplane Over the Sea" from Neutral Milk Hotel, "Aquemini" from Outkast, "XO" from Elliot Smith, "Miseducation..." from Lauryn Hill, and "End Hits" from Fugazi are a few personal favorites that come to mind.  That year also spawned some epic turds from Madonna, Master P, and Eve 6 but I'll save that vitriol for another article. (My disdain for Madonna could easily double the length of Moby [...]

Faith No More at Raleigh Red Hat Amphitheater

Faith No More / Refused Friday, July 31, 2015 Red Hat Amphitheater, Downtown Raleigh -- Certain other media outlets (I'm looking at you Indy Week) were quick to write off Friday's double reunion show as a cash grab, tarnishing the legacies of once-relevant avant garde rock bands. I can relate to that sentiment, particularly since the reunion boom of the last 10 years has produced as many sighs as it has cheers, but in the case of Faith No More [...]
