Make live music part of your First Friday plans in August with PineCone and Maury Ave. at the City of Raleigh Museum. You can also enjoy the Museum’s exhibits, including “The Underground: Photographs of Raleigh’s Music Scene 1976-1985,” a new exhibit that highlights the golden days of Raleigh’s celebrated nightlife hotspot beneath Cameron Village. The specially curated exhibit is based on the documentary photographs of local photographer Chris Seward, who, in the late 1970s and early 1980s, took thousands of images of the music scene happening in these clubs. “The Underground” exhibit will be open through December 2018.
You’re welcome to drop in between 6 & 8 p.m. for a laid back evening with fellow PineCone members and music and art lovers. You are welcome to bring non-members as guests, and you can both choose CDs from the PineCone Bluegrass Radio Show vault!
We will provide light hors d’oeuvres, wine courtesy of The Wine Feed, beer courtesy of Trophy Brewing, and non-alcoholic beverages.
Maury Ave. is a project founded by singer-songwriter Matthew Dempsey. Originally from St. Louis, he earned his grit playing the streets and venues of his hometown, and he has recently relocated to the Triangle. He performs with incredible passion, and his relatable songs are catchy while uniquely rooted in Americana. Dempsey’s lyrics are sprinkled with the classic themes of love, passion, and heartbreak, then mixed with a modern flavor all his own. His sound will attract listeners who enjoy Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, and Bob Dylan to name just a few.
Thanks to the City of Raleigh Museum for inviting PineCone to be part of their August First Friday!
