NCSU FOSS Fair 2012

Jack Neely of NCSU OIT group has put on a Free and Open Source Software fair each year for the past four years. This year I was fortunate enough to join them. It was a fun day and I was happy to meet other folks interested in Linux and such things, while catching up with some old TriLUG’gers that I don’t get to see very often. They even let me give a talk! 🙂

Amazing Time In Lullaby

Sam Prekop & Archer Prewitt at The Carrboro Artscenter

I’ve been waiting patiently for at least six years hoping to see Sam Prekop after I became fully engrossed with his eponymous cd from 1999. Tonite at the Carrboro Artscenter I was not let down. Hypnotizing and gorgeous. From two guys with guitars.

And who knew that Carrboro’s cutest ghost girl/sushi waitress was in a band? Indeed, it was a pleasant surprise to see that Caroline made up one half of Shallow Be Thy Name. Quirky songs, made more-so by their stripped down acoustic performance. A show that was definitely worth the price of admission.
