On Sunday, Charlotte has the Coca-Cola 600 for fans of a fast marathon. For those of you craving a marathon of bands that changes more than Darrell Waltrip's tires, Snug Harbor brings the SNUG 600 — a slew of local acts on three different nights.
Six bucks gets you in on Friday night's lineup of the Temperance League; The Beggars; Colossus; and returning for another go at the Snug, Jeremiah & The Howling Owls. Expect distorted guitars and a wide spectrum of rock music.
The final Sunday night show has Modern Primitives, metal from The Poontanglers, The Chalkies, and lo-fi duo AM/FM's to round out SNUG 600. This show is $6 and might be the most diverse of the three nights.
Each show starts at 9 p.m., so even if you are race fan, you still have a chance to check out a myriad of bands. Surf rock, freaky folk and garage punk: it's like a convention of rock's genres all from North Carolina-based groups.
