Weekend Picks: June 8th – 11th


There is a little bit of everything going on this weekend. From live music, to outdoor movies, and another huge food truck rodeo in downtown Raleigh. The weather looks like it will cooperate this weekend and there are plenty of events to enjoy. Here are my top picks of things to do this weekend with the added bonus of a Thursday night pick!

Thursday – June 8th

Outdoor Movie at Booth Amphitheatre – Cary
The “Movies By Moonlight” series returns to Booth Amphitheatre. Tonight enjoy “La La Land” . Movie starts around 8:30. Tickets are just $5 and kids under 12 are free. You are allowed to bring in chairs, blankets and your own food and drink including beer and wine. Before the movie enjoy music by Tea Cup Gin as they play a selection of indie-jazz and Hollywood themed tunes to get you warmed up for the movie. Gates open at 7pm.

Friday – June 9th

D-Town Brass Band – Carrboro
D-Town Brass is a 15 person psychedelic-jungle-jazz-funk-orchestra from Durham, NC. They describe their music as a “blend of the familiar with the avant-garde with a rhythmic punch that cannot be matched by any band ever in the history of the multiverse.” Show is at the The Station in Carrboro at 8pm. Tickets can be purchased in advance here. ($8 advance / $10 day of show)

Saturday – June 10th

Tiki Party at Fair Game Beverage – Pittsboro
