Weird, how did I miss all the *other* "local band days" in Durham?
Surely if they've worked their way all the way down the list to
Bombadil, they must've already had des_ark Day, and Cantwell Gomez and
Jordan Day, and Ex-Members Day, and Red Collar Day, and Bull City Day,
and (RIP) Dirty Little Heaters Day, and (ditto RIP) Sames Day, and
Midtown Dickens Day, and Future Kings of Nowhere Day, and Maple Stave
Day, and Wusses Day, and Beloved Binge Day, and . . . .
Is there some archive of these proclamations somewhere?
