North Carolina powerpop (& more!) concert schedule – Fall 2013
The concert schedule always heats up in Fall when the kids are due back on campus and 2013 is no different. This year, we’re including some Atlanta dates as there are two BIG events there if you can make the trip (hey. its only 4-5 hours by car so suck it up!). Also, I’ve included some acts that fall outside of what we would ordinarly think of as powerpop because they’re worth seeing and hearing regardless of your genre of preference.
The Atlanta dates include a Weezer show. Don’t miss it. Best of all, David Bash will be bringing the International Pop Overthrow Festival to the area. More on that in a later post.

12th- Bill Kirchen @ Southland Ballroom Raleigh NC
