August is another eventful month at the Pinhook! Below are just some of the highlights:
Thurs. 8/5 10PM
Couldn’t make it to New York for the Madison Square Garden Arcade Fire show? Don’t despair, watch the entire concert streamed live at The Pinhook, thanks to Merge Records. The drinks here are a whole lot cheaper and you don’t have to worry about that nasty bedbug infestation!
Sat. 8/7 10PM $5
Hog, ‘the new titans of metal in the Triangle’, features ex-Tooth members. They’ll shred with Make and Enoch.
Fri. 8/13 $5
Gaywatch, the 2nd annual beach party. 2 DJ’s, films, costumes, etc.
Monday night films celebrate Gay and Lesbian Film Fest month – remaining screenings:
8/9: But I’m a Cheerleader

All films show at 8:00
Wed. 8/18 Queeraoke – 2nd Wed. of every month. 8PM
Fri. 8/20 Queerbarat 9PM Sliding Scale, $7-10
Float back to eras gone by with sultry lounge singers encased in sequins and boas, buxom burlesque beauties, raunchy jokes, and more. Come out early to mingle with the performers, stay late to trip the light fantastic on the dance floor… and inevitably leave with several new crushes.
Costumes strongly cheered on!
Wed. 8/25 – The Record: The Nasher Opening Night After-Party Hosted by WXDU 8:30
This exhibit promises to be as coolly enticing as Debbie Harry in Rapture. If you’re an art/music fan within reasonable driving distance and miss it, consider yourself a total square. Mingle with the skinny jeans set at the after party!
Thurs. 8/26 – In the Year of the Pig ‘Doom metal meets Krautrock’ 9PM $5
There’s also Trivia, Open Mic, and tons of other bands too numerous to mention!
When Candace aka Durham City Guide Examiner isn’t researching Durham music, art, film, landmarks, food, or beer, she’s probably hunting for some form of America’s rusty gold, just like those two guys on TV, but with fewer fist bumps, overused lingo, and bravado. She enjoys posting her finds on www.kitschandcanoodle.etsy.com.
