Please forgive the tardiness of today’s to-do post. Our dog ate our pixels and is now passed out on the floor.
It’s set to be a busy night in Fayetteville.
Out east, Casual Flyze and the Earth are the featured band for tonight’s free Gulley Park concert at … you guessed it, Gulley Park. Pro tip: Bring a blanket or chair to that one.
There’s all sorts of action planned downtown. Kingfish will have music on their new stage, Jeff Kearney and Nathan McLeod will play at Dickson Street Pub and probably walk across the street afterwards to play with Guta at Rogue, and Hardaway & The Commoners are going to throw a party on the patio at Powerhouse.
The full list is below the birthdays. Get it.
Locals: Dallas Davis, Leslie Belden, Jack Allred, Garrett Miller, Kelly M. Fredrickson, Jeremy Barnes, Greta Lawson, Melissa Wood, Scott Roach, Mattie Watson, Summer Flowers Gallagher, Cassy Dominick, Lynette Stout Hailey, Suzan Burkart, Rob Hatfield
Others: Kwanzaa creator Maulana Karenga is 70 and actress Jane Lynch (Glee) is 51. Other birthdays include singer-songwriter Woodie Guthrie (1912-1967), 38th President of the United States Gerald Ford (1913-2006), and cartoon co-creator (Flintstones, Scooby-Doo, Smurfs) William Hanna (1910-2001).
