It sure is a nice one this morning. Got the back door open as I knock out the Weekender, and I let my oldest skip his last day of middle school. Man, I love Friday the 13th.




  • Start your Saturday at the Cobblestone Farmers Market, here Atelier del Valle patisserie returns with the sweet stuff. The line forms at approximately 9 a.m. in Old Salem.
  • Or, you know, hit High Point for the Uptowne Market in the library parking lot. Details are pretty thin, but it’s an open-air deal, with food and crafts and whatnot. If you go, get pictures.
  • Krankies Coffee perpetuates its cool factor with a motorcycle show at noon.
  • The Triad Pride Men’s Chorus makes a Winston-Salem appearance at Hanesbrands Theatre with Deja Vu, a tribute to the music of the 1980s, at 8 p.m.
  • The Camel City Thrashers hold their Zombie Prom at the Garage at 9 p.m.
  • Vince Gill makes an appearance at the White Oak Amphitheatre of the Greensboro Coliseum.
  • And New York Pizza may have the show of the week, with Greensboro and Winston-Salem bands sharing the tiny stage. Feverdream meets Jews & Catholica and the Kneads on Tate Street at 9 p.m. Jordan Green calls it “a rare and beautiful thing.” He also likens Jews & Catholics guitarist Eddie Garcia’s playing to “the aural equivalent of ripping the entrails out of a beast.”


  • It’s Father’s Day. Spend some time with your dad.

As always, feel free to pass the Weekender around to your friends. Tell ’em they can get it for themselves by signing up here.
