Get Rowdy at the Pinhook: Frank Fairfield
Frank Fairfield is a native of Fresno, California who now resides in Los Angeles. Frank's unique take on the traditional murder ballad, "Duncan and Brady" was Third Man Records's first Blue Series release of 2014. TMR calls Frank's performance, "A dark and delirious slice of new American Primitive by the modern master of the form…a genius on the fiddle, guitar, and banjo who possesses a broken and soulful voice which perfectly reflects the tragedy and damnation of the subject matter…".
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)!
