WKNC: Even in Summertime, The Beat Goes On

It is now officially Summer in Raleigh. Beyond the sweltering heat and humidity, it is also obvious when strolling along the NC State campus. Businesses that cater to students have cut back to summer hours, Hillsborough Street has significantly less traffic, and the number of young folks frequenting Downtown Raleigh’s hot spots have dwindled in number. WKNC isn’t in hibernation mode, though. They have a series of concerts and dance parties lined up for those who permanently reside here or haven’t returned home for the summer semester.

Today (June 23rd) will see a free concert on campus featuring Raleigh’s own Annuals and Bright Young Things with What Laura Says. It’s a benefit concert and attendees are encouraged to bring canned goods or cash to donate to the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina.

The event starts at 7PM in front of Witherspoon Student Center off of Dan Allen Drive.

The other exciting event by WKNC is a DJ dance party at Jibarra featuring Afterhours DJs. It coincides with Raleigh’s First Friday (July 2nd), and looks to be an exciting end to an already festive weekend. Jibarra has hosted DJ dance parties before, and have been a lot of fun. The infusion of WKNC to the mix can only make a great thing better.
