Those folks from the Dare County Arts Council (DCAC) sure know how to throw a party . . . at least that’s the conclusion after spending Saturday at the The Second Annual Rock the Cape at Koru Village in Avon
Great music headlined by Southern Culture on the Skids, a really cool live art with Chris Kemp creating a “Rock The Cape” mural as the day progressed and some fun raffle items. And it was all for a good cause. The concert is a benefit for the DCAC with a portion of the proceeds going directly to the Community Music School that the organization sponsors.
The music for the day consisted of local band Eddy and the Rip Tides who have a great surf sound. That was followed by kids from the Community Music School performing solo and they were very, very good.
Then the Cashmere Jungle Lords kicked it into gear-and it was really clear how they have stuck around for 30 years . . . great musically, really tight and great songs.
And then Southern Culture on the Skids. For those who have never seen the group, put them on your bucket list. Fun, funny, amazing musicians, great sound and how can you not like a band that sings about an “Eight Piece Box” of chicken and has members of the audience come on stage and toss fried chicken to the crowd?
