Aside from sharing an airport with Raleigh and a basketball rivalry with Chapel Hill, Durham doesn't have that much in common with the other points of the triangle. Celebrating our own scene works.
Check out the schedule, pick up a festival pass, and make your plans.
Must see set for me is A Rooster for the Masses at Joe and Jo's on Wednesday. Biggest disappointment is that Torch Marauder and Mountain Goats are on different stages at the same time on Friday night. Two of Durham's brightest lights, and you can only see one. An embarrasment of riches, i guess you could call it.
