I was invited to play Tar Heel Music Festival today as part of a trio. We'll be at Jessee's Coffee in Carrboro from 5pm to 5:45pm. Music from many other bands at the Cave, Local 506, and Nightlight until past midnight. I'm looking forward to Gmish, a local klezmer band, among others.

Also today, the second Illogicon at which some of my friends including [livejournal.com profile] rdansky are invited guests and speakers, and many others are attending is in Cary last night through Sunday. I don't actually have anything in particular I want to ask Tim Powers, although you'd think I would. [livejournal.com profile] maegwynn and I went last night.

Illogicon

Went to Illogicon this weekend. Met nice people I didn't already know. Shopped and found one relatively rare and out of print book [livejournal.com profile] maegwynn was surprised we didn't already have. Saw some nice costumes. Hotel bar opens at 5pm and closes at 11pm on weekends. Also lacked bitters. Bunch of savages in this town. Service, on the other hand, was excellent. Heard [livejournal.com profile] rdansky read a haunted house story at midnight.

Within walking distance of the hotel was Players Retreat which is a bar that serves food, and David's Dumpling and Noodle Bar which is a restaurant but has a bar. The former has tasty burgers, the best selection of single malts in the RTP area, and a dedicated button on the register for Old Fashioneds, and the latter is inexpensive, very tasty, and quick. Both previously familiar to me, and both recommended.
