Tonight is the Bladen County Records showcase at Holocene, with sets by six great local bands. See flyer above for details, although I feel safe in assuming there won't be any ferocious dragons unless you bring your own. The bands (joined by DJ Chris Bigalke of Borrowdeer Records) will be performing on stage setups in both rooms, so there won't be any dead time in between sets—as soon as one band is over, you can just scurry over to the other room to catch the next band. PLUS they're giving away a free compilation CD of demo tracks (you can read more about that here) and there's other goodies available such as Bladen County's first issue of their new zine, and their Nativity calendar. Sounds like a party and a half, and a steal at $5..... AAAAAND (omg) there'll be beers for a buck. $1!
