We have a busy week ahead with some new local beers on the menu. We are
stoked to have have a new IPA by Mother Earth Brewery (Kinston ) plus the
Oatmeal Porter from the Highland Brewery Company. We have a couple of early
bar events this week including the new Tarot Art Card Show and a Saturday
Anarchist Book Fair (free!) with a benefit show to follow by Systems /
Spermcount / Phantascist..
Don't miss this Friday's Holiday for Quince Record Release Show for Monsonia
with special guests MAKE and Minor Stars!!
Plus, check out our upcoming holiday events including "Craft and Cocktails
with Scrap Exchange", our Holiday Craft Fair and our New Year's Eve
*Tues 11/09* Bright Young Things <http://www.myspace.com/brightyoungmusic> /
Boy Without God <http://www.myspace.com/boywithoutgod> / Pinkerton
9:30 PM : $5
Raleigh retro-pop quintet Bright Young Things could easily extend as a
branch of the Drughorse family tree-- these 70's re-interpreters glow with
the radiance of bands like the Raspberries and power-pop-era Wings while
rocking sweet Pete Ham/George Harrison/Terry Reid melodies. Boy Without God
is the songwriting moniker for Boston's Gabriel Birnbaum, whose weary voice
and love for sweetness run somewhere between David Berman and Brian Wilson
in the grand scheme of beautiful music-making.
*early Wed 11/10* BAr OPEN: 5pm onward. Come on down for a cold drink and

*early Fri 11/ 12 TAROT ART SHOW RECEPTION : 5- 9 PM : FREE *
"Tarot Art Show is a mixed media group art show featuring a collective of
local artists, each of whom has received a randomly assigned card from the
Major Arcana as inspiration to create an artwork in whatever medium they
choose. With no restrictions aside from time and space, more than 23 artists
will showcase their talents, using such forms as video, photography, and
painting to bring this ancient oracle to life. Brought to you by Bird and
Stone Productions, the Tarot Art Show promises to be an exciting way to
experience the local art scene, and the strange and beautiful world of the
*later Fri 11/ 12 Holidays for Quince <http://www.holidaysforquince.com/>Record
Release for MONSONIA <http://www.facebook.com/pages/Monsonia/31642901702>.
33.3 with special guests:*
*MAKE <http://www.myspace.com/thebandmake> / MINOR
STARS<http://www.myspace.com/minorstars>with live projections /
visuals by Projexorcism during Monsonia's Set.
*doors at 9 PM : $5*
This show is a vinyl-release party for local minimal-rock trio Monsonia, who
like their pizza crusts thick and their riffs even thicker. The one song up
on the 'net from 33.3 continues Growler-style dark chord-churning with a
distinct post-punk poker-faced intensity and some badass counter-rhythms
from drummer Andy Willard-- each part is so pronounced you'll have to listen
to this record four times to hear it all. Local space-doomers Make and
heavy-psych rockers Minor Stars start off the night. To top it off, the
foothills-based 16mm projection behemoth Projexorcism will be in full effect
for Monsonia's set, sharing the world of tripped-out educational films on
multiple screens, wherever they may be. Check it:

*Plus, 5pm dicussion on Contemporary Movements-led by Michal Osterweil*
*What Would it Mean to Win? Theoretical-Practice in Contemporary Movements.
5 pm @ The Nightlight*
Michal Osterweil will lead a discussion based on the Turbulence: Ideas for
Movement project (www.turbulence.org.uk), premised on the notion that
theoretical and intellectual work is crucial to our contemporary activist
practices, particularly because there seem to be no clear-cut frameworks for
acting in the present moment. The aim of the presentation will be to
identify and discuss key issues and questions, focusing on tensions and
divergences that require collective thinking.
