Big Shindig Releases Set Times

shindigThe 95X Big Shindig on Sunday brings the best full day of alternative rock music of the summer to Walnut Creek Amphitheater. Impressively, nearly every Shindig artist has had a song in heavy rotation on Alternative Nation (Sirius/XM) this year (the same cannot be said for the event’s chief sponsor, however).

The day can be divided into 3 chapters. IAMDYNAMITE (“Stereo”) opens the new alternative chapter with their driving, jangly sound. However the day really gets going with the performer of one of Alternative’s best, tertiary songs of the year, Sir Sly (Gold), takes the stage. Brit pop Wolf Gang (”The King and All Of His Men”) follows, then Big Data takes the stage (“Dangerous”). “Dangerous” will probably be the big hit song of the afternoon. Bear Hands (“Giants”) and the outrageous Foxy Shazam (“Oh Lord”) round out the first chapter.

The sound takes a more Modern Rock feel at 4:45 when The Pretty Reckless (“Heaven Knows”) takes the stage with the day’s only female lead singer. They are followed by 90s Modern Rock kings Fuel (“Shimmer”, “Hemorrhage (In My Hands)”). Fuel is, ironically, the band that has gotten the most airplay of this event on Raleigh radio through the years.

This decade returns with a gigantic tub of “happy” at 7pm when Fitz & the Tantrums (“Out Of My League”, “The Walker”, “MoneyGrabber”) take the stage. Their April 2003 release, “More Than Just A Dream”, was one of the year’s best CDs.

At 8:10 Foster the People will take the stage and probably mark the entire event’s apex. Best known for “Pumped Up Kicks”, Foster… has snuck in eleven other hits since, and stands as one of the most significant bands of this decade. (“Best Friend”, “Houdini”, “Helena Beat”)

Headliner Weezer takes the stage at 9:25. With their 15+ hits, Weezer is one of the most important Alternative Rock bands in the wake of Nirvana. However the bulk of their excellence came in the 90s, and while I’m sure their show will be as good as it was in the DPAC earlier this year, this is a school night, so forgive us for leaving early. (“Say It Ain’t So”, “Island In The Sun”, “Back to the Shack”)

Walnut Creek Amphitheatre Loses Its Name, Again

walnutcreek It appears the naming rights period for Time Warner Cable has expired at Walnut Creek. The amphitheater, originally called “Walnut Creek Amphitheatre” has carried 3 different naming rights deals in its history; Hardees, Alltel, and Time Warner Cable.

The first show for the upcoming 2014 season was announced yesterday, and it features “Lady Antebellum at Walnut Creek Amphitheatre”, so it looks like until another naming rights deal is secured, the facility will fall back on its original, rightful name.

When corporate naming rights deals first came along, the names stuck with consumers. However after throwing away so many names, it begs two questions: do fluctuating names damage the brand of the facility, and do naming rights deals sway consumer decision making at all? I can certainly say that I am mostly immune to these kinds of efforts (though I whole-heartedly thank RBC/PNC for ponying up half of the money for Raleigh to finally get an arena 😉 )

North Hills Beach Music Season Begins Tonight

This summer’s weekly North Hill Beach Music Series begins tonight with The Embers. The events take place in the North Hills commons area, in front of the movie theaters, and last from 6-9pm.

There are a few rules to follow as well:

  • No outside coolers or beverages permitted
  • Parents on Site Policy – Please remember that anyone under 18 must be with a parent or guardian after 8pm

Parking is always interesting for these events. The decks in North Hills and the surface lots usually fill up and spill across Lassiter Mill into the neighborhood and into the Lassiter. Another option is North Hills East, where there is some surface parking, but also hundreds of deck spaces. Please be patient and careful crossing Six Forks Rd. at the Dartmouth signal.
