NORTH CAROLINA STATE UNIVERSITY's WKNC (88.1FM THE REVOLUTION)/ RALEIGH, NC, will hold its 12th annual two-part DOUBLE BARREL BENEFIT concert SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 7th at LINCOLN THEATRE in RALEIGH and SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 14th, at CAT'S CRADLE in CARBORO.
SPIDER BAGS WILL kick off the festival on FEBRUARY 7th, while ETERNAL SUMMERS will top the lineup for FEBRUARY 14th in CARBORO, NC. The full lineup will be announced shortly.
“DOUBLE BARREL has always been a platform for WKNC to showcase its favorite artists while pairing them with new and exciting rising acts,” commented WKNC GM JOHN KOVALCHIK. “But most importantly, the event brings together artists and community members for the sake of gathering essential support for the station without relying on phone drives.”
Since launching DOUBLE BARREL BENEFIT in 2004, the annual two-night concert event has presented numerous incredible regional acts, including THE MOUNTAIN GOATS, FUTURE ISLANDS and MEGAFAUN. In addition to promoting emerging local musicians, the event has since become essential to WKNC-FM’s success in the Triangle and beyond.
“We are beyond ecstatic to have such great local and regional bands like SPIDER BAGS and ETERNAL SUMMERS play for our DOUBLE BARREL BENEFIT concert this year,” local music director CLINT BOWMAN stated. “It is through their willingness to play that we can continue to be an active presence in the music scene of today.”
Tickets, priced at $12 in advance and $15 day of the show, are on sale here. Two-night passes are available for $22. All proceeds benefit WKNC.
