Friday, September 10:
Jon Andersen is playing an acoustic show at the Carolina threatre from 8- 11. Tickets are always cheap. Too bad Vangelis isn't still rocking it out with Anderson anymore. Killer Electric rocks: think the sounds of widespread panic with a keytar LOL. It ought to be good, as far as seeing 65 year olds not named Willie Nelson play goes at least.
Sunday, September 12:
There is music on the lawn of the Blandwood Mansion - 2:00pm-6:00pm on Monday night. BYOB (blanket :-)) They have wine and all kinds of other stuff available for purchase; usually it is various Childress wines- very nice.
Monday, September 13:
Every monday they have the Thai Chi/Chi Gong folks duing their thing out by fitness at the fountain. I think it is at 6:30 and runs till 7:30 downtown.
The Glass Menagarie is playing at the Triad stage - 8:00pm-10:00pm. Cool pics at weoutranthesun.wordpress.com
On Tuesday September 14:
At the Carolina Theatre (awesome if you've never been) on Tuesday is the Carolina Classic Movie - To Kill A Mockingbird - 7:30pm
anything going on during the week of the 9-15 of october - I'll actually be in and around UNCG visiting some friends.
Well of course you know that there is a regular schedule of good stuff going on uptown. Always bands Wed-Fri in and around Natty Greene's (local brewpub downtown near UNCG campus. Eat a Yum Yum's while you're on campus- coolest little hotdog shop in the world. I am in Vegas that week or I'd offer to show you around. There is also a nice little cigar bar a couple doors down from Natty Greene's you can check out for live jazz and a good smoke. I don't see much posted up on the local restaurants and bar's sites but PM as the date gets closer and I'll let you know if I have anything. To say I'm actively invloved in the bar scene around here would be an understatement so if it's going on... I probably know about it and am either there or am wishing I could be. Cheers.
Rock the block in downtown winston-salem is always really fun, and 5th street filling station has some amazing food
For sure. Hutch and Harris is pretty awesome as well. If you're in to the chain thing Mellow Mushroom has a great draft selection and usually really good music. Plus there are a few really good ice cream shops down there within a block or two of the school of the arts.
