Spotlight on: "Mystic River"

There is something to be said about feeling music and being able to flow with it. You know someone is truly happy...or drunk, when they are twirling and Mystic River is the type of band that can get a crowd twirling. I'm not sure what song it was that got me twirling, but this band made me an instant fan. When Mystic River goes out on stage things heat up pretty ...

Spotlight on, "Local's Tavern"

Local’s tavern is a little slice of musical heaven hidden away on market street in Wilmington, NC. It’s a great place to stop after work and blow off a little steam, but if live music is what you crave then definitely check them out on the weekends. I suggest you get there early though because most nights they draw ...

Music has always played a huge part in American culture. From The Beatles to Bon Jovi, we all can identify with a certain brand of music influencing our lives. Where do all of these famous musicians start out? Famous artists we all know and love all started out at the bottom of the ladder, playing shows in clubs and local venues. Begging people to come to their shows, being rejected by record labels, not reaping any ben...

"Train Wreck, a great Southern rock cover band"

Often when you hear someone say, “This is going to be a real train wreck”, you tend to think that something terrible is about to happen, but in the case of Kenny Reeves and his soulful southern brothers that is certainly not the case. I had the chance to hear Kenny and his band Train wreck on two separate occasions now and found this middle aged cover band from Wilmington, NC to be a true Cape Fear treasure. The interaction between the crowd and the band is phenomenal. Kenny a...

"The Cure" cover band recreates an era

The purpose of a tribute band is to let a new generation experience the sights and sounds of the past, a moment in time that the original artist either can't or will not give a present day audience.

The Cured is a Southe...

Deep South The Bar is definitely your quintessential dive bar and I think they are proud of that fact. It's small, red in decor and reminds me of a garage.


This bar may be off the beaten path a bit compared to say the establishments on Glenwood South and Fayetteville Street in DTR, but it is actually very convenient to the Raleigh downtown amphitheater and makes for a great spot for an after show beer or three.
