Band: Chatham County Line

Its that time of year again. The 8th Annual Chatham County Line Ho Ho Holiday Party will be at the Pourhouse Wednesday. Get there early because in years past, the only place to stand will be on the furniture. This will be a great night of bluegrass and the perfect way to get away from the Holiday Crush.

The Connells

In yet another long-standing holiday tradition, The Connells come out of hibernation to play their annual Holiday party this Friday at the Pourhouse. These guys were the ones who put Raleigh on the Musical Map in the 80s-90s and this show is a homecoming of sorts for all those involved with this great band throughout the years. I'm still hoping for a cameo appearance from George Huntley - and it would be a perfect reunion with a great group of musicians. Come out Friday as this is an obligatory show for those of us Raleigh music lovers. (Photo Courtesy of PGA Music)
