Followed by an outdoor festival on Saturday. Free outdoor performances; $20 and up show.
The first Heroin Kills show was put on last winter after a group of friends in Plaza Midwood lost numerous people to the drug. After raising $1,600 that time around, they’re back it, raising money for the scholarship fund of a local holistic treatment center and the NC Harm Reduction Coalition. Performers include The MADD Hatters, The Common Wealth, No Brainer, The Fill Ins, Sibannac and Black Fleet. $3
This local group has quite a good reputation around town and for good reason. The band is comprised of Shawn Olson and Josh Faggart (also of Cement Stars) and Scott Weaver (who doesn’t know Scott Weaver? Music wise, think: Babyshaker and Snagglepuss). Seeing the trio with Patabamba and Astrea Corp makes this a not-to-miss show at Visulite Theatre. $10
