Daily Flyer: Monday, Aug. 15

If you’re looking for the daily to-do post, look no further. You’ve found it.

Since adding public meetings, birthdays and the occasional bit of news in the opening, the to-do post has grown beyond the Arts & Events boundary to become more of a daily bulletin rather than just a list of things to do.

We’ll be tinkering around with some new features this week (see Local Links below), but fear not. All the to-do goodness will remain intact.

Happy new week!

Arts & Events

Metal show at Rogue

Don’t let tonight’s short list fool you. Fayetteville is about to blow up. The weather is cooling off, the students are trickling in, and if you listen closely, you can hear the county fair trucks headed our way. Fall in Fayetteville rules.

If you’re looking for some fun tonight, there’s a metal show at Rogue and a couple of singer/songwriters playing around town.

Other than that, you’re on your own. Find a patio or something.

Update: Smoke & Barrel has added a show with Austin, TX duo Not In The Face.

JJ’s Grill: Miller & Buford
Pesto Cafe: Darren Ray
The Perk: Open acoustic jam
Rogue Pizza Co.: Scorned / Burdens of All / Forsaken Few
Smoke & Barrel Tavern: Not In The Face
