WKNC's Double Barrel Benefit Lineup Announced

Hammer No More The Fingers will be headlining Night 2
of WKNC's Double Barrel Benefit

WKNC's Double Barrel Benefit is making it's return to Kings Barcade in Raleigh on February 4 and 5. Double Barrel Benefit is a benefit show used as a fundraiser for WKNC, one of the worthwhile radio stations left in the area.  WKNC provides an outlet for local musicians in the Triangle area and beyond, and this is a great way of helping support the station and your local music scene. Plus you're getting to see some of the finest local artists around! This year's lineup is one that's got me very excited for the weekend of February 4, both nights consist of very diverse genres, making for one great weekend in Raleigh.

Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased here through etix.  A one day pass is $10 and a two day pass is $18.  Also included in the ticket price is a compilation CD of all eight of the bands, featuring a previously unreleased song from each one.  Do yourself a favor and check these shows out, you definitely don't want to miss them!

Day One:

The Old Ceremony
Bright Young Things
Cassis Orange

Day Two:
Hammer No More The Fingers
King Mez
Kid Future

  1. Thanks for the awesome post!

    One minor addendum though: Inflowential, who is no longer playing night two the benefit, appears on the compilation.

    In Inflow's stead, King Mez and HaLo will perform on night two. (Unfortunately, these two fantastic hip-hop acts were added to the bill after the compilation was completed.)
