Here are a few things happening locally (in the Durham/Raleigh area) that you might be interested in...
The Pressure Boys will be reuniting for a show at the Cat's Cradle in Carrboro, NC on May 2, and May 3 2008 to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation! Tickets are on sale now!
The reunion show is the second event put together for Songs For Sixty Five Roses with all proceeds going to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. In 2004, Pressure Boys singer and local producer John Plymale's six year old daughter Allie was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. In 2006 they banded together to create the Songs For Sixty Five Roses benefit CD and concert which raised over $30,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. I'm told the May 2 show is sold out already!
The Stenzel Twins, authors of "The Power of Two" will be appearing at McIntyre's Books (near Chapel Hill, NC) on May 5th as a part of their national book tour. Isa and Ana are inspirational CF/TX twins.
