Oblivionation, Skemata, Firing Squad
The Maywood, Raleigh
Sorry State Records proprietor Daniel Lupton was raving about this show on the internet, which is a pretty major endorsement if you're into the hardcore/posthardcore thing (which I am).

Part Time, Sea Lions, Daddy Issues
Duke Coffeehouse, Durham
Welcome back, Duke Coffeehouse! It has been a long lonely summer without you.

Greensboro's Daddy Issues released a new song today, and like the other songs on their Bandcamp page, it's borderline obscene. Give it a listen!

Hopscotch Music Festival
Multiple Venues, Raleigh
This is it, the fifth annual Hopscotch Music Festival. 11 official venues, with shows happening from late afternoon until after midnight, Thursday thru Saturday. Plus a metric ton of free day-parties, all of which are open to everyone, no passes necessary.

Most of the info you need is at the Hopscotch website. I made a Google Calendar which you should be able to figure out how to add to your own calendar. It contains the day-parties and the nighttime shows, with exact set times where available.

Not enough for you? There are fun interactive maps to the clubs via the Google Maps API.

Other ways to get this info:

1) The handheld-optimized version of the site, or a new simplified text version of this page, for you lo-fi fans.

2) An RSS feed. AND! A weekly oggcast! (OK, it's just my WXDU radio show.)

3) An iCal feed of all the listed shows, updated nightly.

4) This listing is posted once or twice a week to ch-scene, the mailing list which is itself a mirror of alt.music.chapel-hill.

5) For you web 2.0 fans, we have a facebook app *and* a Twitter account.

6) This amuses me:
