Get Rowdy at the Pinhook: Wand/ Babes
Wand reborn as "Wand"— an obese organ falsely organized as 4 overjoyous nerds. Four flesh balloons betting on a few aging amplifiers. I hear they listen to Here Come the Warm Jets on loop all day and plot mail fraud.
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)!
