Daily Beat: Sept. 18, 2014



Downtown Greensboro Inc. is holding its annual report to the community at 8:30 a.m. today at Gibbs Hundred Brewing. You needed to register already (though I can’t imagine they’ll turn you away), but you can read about it in Triad City Beat‘s next issue.

The  Sankofa African American Museum on Wheels comes to the Armfield Athletic Center Alumni Gym at Guilford College from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. (and the same times tomorrow).

Reynolda House is holding a gallery talk at noon: “Julia Hood, co-curator of The Art of Seating:Two Hundred Years of American Design, will speak on the distinctions of Studio Furniture.” There will be a separate talk there at 5:30 p.m.

The Greensboro Housing Coalition is hosting its annual Healthy Homes Bus Tour today. Call 336.691.9521 for more information.


SECCA is raffling a Kona cyclocross bike to help benefit its programming and exhibitions today starting at 5 p.m. There is also a bike race at 6 p.m.

This month’s City Market event, a monthly outdoor festival of sorts, begins tonight at 5:30 p.m. The theme this time around is vinyl, and it’s going down at the Railyard in Greensboro. Check out the monthly open house for the Forge makerspace nearby at the same time.

Swimm, FayRoy and Winston-Salem’s Carlos Bocanegra of the band Bocanegra play at the Garage tonight. Details here.

The Greensboro Voters Alliance is hosting a meeting at the McGirt Horton Library tonight at 7 p.m.

But obviously, the most important thing happening tonight is the Triad City Beat anniversary/Kickstarter party at Jackie’s Place in High Point. See you there between 6 and 9 p.m.!

But also, Reanimator is showing Searching fr Sugarman, which I’m sure will be pretty rad, starting at 8 p.m. At the same time, UNCG playwriting students will have their work performed on campus. More info here.

Not a whole lot of details on this, but it appears author Lee Zacharias will give a reading at UNCG tonight at 7 p.m. Here’s what I’ve got.

I can also tell you that the Piedmont Plein Air Paint Out begins today, and that High Point University will be participating, but I don’t immediately have any information about where or when. Oops. It is the first year this is happening and will run until Sept. 21.
