Get Rowdy at the Pinhook: Black Excellence
Black excellence, a benefit concert geared toward social awareness. Raising money for the "Durham Teen Center", who provides middle and high school youth with high quality programming. The center encourages youth to express themselves, transcend personal boundaries, learn the value of service to their community, and develop individual assets that foster healthy and meaningful lives. All of the performers are dedicated to seeing cultural change in our communities. Genres range from hiphop, Dance rock, soul, r&b, comedy, spoken word, live dj and so much more
The above teaser is the perfect epitaph for this Durham staple, but we hope it never ever ceases. The Pinhook has a bar with various cocktails and great brews for a killer price, but it's the whacky interior—a giant spider, free-for-all dance poles, glitter, a mural of a panda holding a beer and shooting rainbows from its mouth (yep)—and the hyper-energy events that keep it in our hearts. If it isn't a concert, it's a dance party, and we're just gonna put it out there—the parties are even bigger, better, and wilder than the shows. Grab some dancy friends, a sick pair of kicks, and vogue the night away (with a beer can in hand, of course)!
