New Raleigh Christmas Party, Kings, Raleigh NC, 12/17/11, originally uploaded by Ash Crowe.
Saturday night Kings was host to the New Raleigh holiday party. It had been over two months since I’d been to Raleigh (entirely too long) and this show gave me the opportunity to have dinner & coffee with a good friend and then head to Kings for a fun show.
I’d not seen Oulipo before and enjoyed their energy onstage.
Shirlette & The Dynamite Brothers always bring a dancing smile for me.
I don’t think their album is quite going to make it onto my list of favorite albums of the year, but it has been one of the albums I put on when I need a smile& a pickup in my day.
One of the last shows I’ll see this year, and a good one to (almost) go out on.
