SLICE OF LIFE :: Phil Has Big Plans This Weekend!

In the next week there’s some good stuff happening in and around town; it looks as if it’ll be a busy weekend for this hirsute individual.

Perhaps the second greatest submarine movie of all time will be playing this Friday and Saturday at the Ballantyne Village Theatre. Is it The Hunt for Red October? Or Run Silent, Run Deep? Maybe The Enemy Below? These are all good guesses, but, sadly, quite incorrect. I speak of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. At 9:40 and Midnight, you’ll be able to partake in a tale of war and remembrance, of vengeance and loss. Don’t you judge me, you unterseaboot snobs! And best of all, we have a limited number of free passes available in the store--come by beforehand to pick yours up, and then enjoy the show!

Additionally, there are some excellent shows coming up in the next week at local watering hole Snug Harbor :

Tonight (Friday, August 10) local boys Bullship will be playing with Chapel Hill's North Elementary. I have it on good authority that Dustin Harbin will be in attendance, and will almost certainly be accepting any beverages our customers would like to purchase for him. For those of you who've never heard Bullship, Dustin describes them as "...kind of like the weirdest, oddest, most relaxing music you'll hear in a rock club this year. Kind of." Thanks, Dustin.

On Saturday, August 11, former Guided by Voices guitarist and current solo artist Doug Gillard will be playing with Charlotte’s own Fence Lions . See who Creative Loafing’s John Schacht called “a master axe-man with an uncanny ear for just the right hook in just the right place." You’ll also get the chance to check out Fence Lions, one of the best of the recent crop of excellent local bands. Swing by the store if you want to give a listen to their new CD. If you like what you hear, they’ve got another show coming up in September.

Next Wednesday, August 15, Snug Harbor will feature the Charlotte version of a supergroup, Nitehawk . Current and past members of Snagglepuss, Tyre Fyre, Babyshaker, Buschovski and The Houstons are part of the most over-qualified cover band in Music History. It’s like Damn Yankees, but, y’know, good (Rusty swears to me he enjoyed it!). Plus, if they make lots of money, my girlfriend gets paid more, and I am all around happier. Thusly, you receive most excellent customer service. It is the circle of (retail) life.

Snug Harbor is located at 1228 Gordon St., just up Pecan Avenue from our store. We’ll see you there!

Rusty Means: The cuter the girl, the stronger the drink.
BTW - somebody should really buy that cute girl from Nitehawk one of those tasty beverages. *Wink-Wink, Nudge-Nudge*

Oh! Uh, I'm a little short this I'll have my hot girlfriend with me, and she'll stab me if she sees me buying you a drink, Karla. Not to mention Phil, who's as likely to stab a guy just for yawning.
