3. High Point
We gotta admit: It’s tough for High Point to rise form the No. 3 position and this week is no different, with a dearth of cultural offerings this week and nothing promising on the horizon. Get it together, guys, or everyone in the city will keep driving out of town on weekends.
A solid grassroots cultural movement has been fueling block parties and neighborhood events, and a decade-long free downtown music series still thrives throughout the summer.
This city loves nothing more than a big, old hype machine. But the Greensboro Coliseum actually delivered on Tuesday afternoon with the announcement that Paul McCartney will be playing a show there on Oct. 30. Big news when a Beatle comes to town.
