Daily Beat: April 10, 2014



Clay Howard, one of the lovely people making it  possible for Triad City Beat to be at the Nussbaum Center, is leading an interactive seminar today called “Transforming Your Story into a Product.” Presented by GTCC’s Small Business Center, the event starts at 10 a.m.

I might regret saying this, but come up and stick your head into our office in the building afterwards, just don’t expect us to entertain you for long!

As part of RiverRun, Nightingale is showing at 2 pm and
Expedition to the End of the World at 5 p.m., both at a/perture. Then at 5:30, Mark Grieco, who directed documentary film Marmato, will be in attendance for the screening (and one tomorrow as well as a Q&A on Saturday).

Did you know that every other Thursday football players from Southern High School in Greensboro help kids at Sumner Elementary learn to read? They’re doing it again this week around 11 a.m.


Wake Forest economics professor Dr. John Dalton is presenting about US trade policy tonight as part of the university’s series on US foreign policy. (Next week, UNCG professor Dr. Robert Griffiths is talking about defense technology).

At the Blind Tiger in Greensboro, Matty Sheets is back with the KFB and Megan Jean starting at 9 p.m. Brantley Gilbert’s Let It Ride tour with Eric Paslay and Thomas Rhett comes to the Greensboro Coliseum tonight at 7:30 p.m.

This sounds pretty interesting: “Debra Granik is an Oscar-nominated independent director and writer. She is best known for her Academy Award nominated work on Winter’s Bone (2010) starring Jennifer Lawrence. The tribute ceremony for Granik will be held on April 10 at 5pm in the UNCSA Babcock Theater.”

Speaking of UNSCA, the school’s jazz ensemble also plays on the campus tonight.

As if that’s not enough, at 6 p.m. photographer Abelardo Morrell is speaking at the Weatherspoon Art Museum at UNCG and then at 8 p.m., Greensboro’s own filmmaker Harvey Robinson (whose photos appear in this week of Triad City Beat and who took our head shots!) is giving a talk at Elsewhere. And Godzilla is playing at Geeksboro. Sheesh, so much stuff!
