An Outer Banks Gathering

Sometimes youâåÛåªre just lucky enough to stumble onto something special or unique and that certainly the case tonight. A friend told me to stop by Farmdog Surf School on the Beach Road in Nags Head. Seems Farmdog was sponsoring a night for local artists to show their wares inside the store.

Farmdog Surf School is this weird and wonderful combination retail store with goodies, clothes and surf gear, a surf school and all around gathering place–so it was a natural fit to bring together some Outer Banks artists who were just beginning to establish themselves.

Live music, too–kind of an acoustic iteration of Hound Dog Family Band without some of the key players. Great music though.

Working with the Dare County Arts Council, the store was able to sell beer and wine, the atmosphere was relaxed with great music–some very innovative art and very talented artists . . . great conversation with friends and some new acquaintances and a fantastic chance to pick out a last minute and truly unique gift.
