Q&A with local band propersleep

A local band signed to Cardigan Records, propersleep, is performing at Slim’s Downtown in Raleigh this Friday at 9 p.m. Staff writer Emma Strickland spoke with the members of propersleep (Benjamin Young, guitar, vocals; Scott Jackson, drums; Andrew McGinn, bass, vocals) about their upcoming concert, what it means to be punk and the experience of performing.

In February, grab your friends and interact with Carolina Performing Arts

Carolina Performing Arts will kick off their new venue CURRENT ArtSpace + Studio with a special installation by Paul Dresher on Feb. 2. His installation, “Sound Maze” is interactive, inviting an audience of all ages and musical backgrounds to play large instruments created by the ensemble, scattered around the room.  The events at CURRENT are unlike a typical gallery show or stage performance. Attending a gallery or art exhibit usually involves walking around and looking at the art. CURRENT, however, wants to challenge that norm of the art world. Events will involve more of the senses.

Review: Kelela's concert took Durham apart

I went to Kelela’s sold-out concert in Durham last Friday night. Her debut album, “Take Me Apart,” was released on Oct  6. She is redefining R&B with her electronic influence, and she's not afraid to delve into the themes of love and sex that are so intrinsic to R&B.
