Saturday, September 28, 2013

Saturday is the usual madness in Cary, with more events than a person can possibly cover. But we’ll highlight just a few:

Panther Creek Invitational – 6th annual marching band competition. Over 1000 students from 12 schools will be competing for the coveted PCI trophy. Gates open at 2 pm. More info on the Calendar.

RailHawks vs Ft. Lauderdale – The ‘Hawks take on the Strikers on Saturday night at Wake Med Soccer Park in Cary. Currently in 3rd place in league standings, Carolina needs to make up some points with a win against Ft. Lauderdale. It should be a beautiful night for the beautiful game.

Maze at Koka Booth – Willie Nelson, Alabama Shakes, Robert Plant – it’s been a good season at Booth Amphitheatre. Add to that Maze, the iconic soul / quiet storm band that’s been rocking the airwaves since 1977. Quiet storm is a genre of slow, soulful jams you might hear on late night radio. Frankie Beverly and Maze have been at it for 30 years, and they’re sure to lay down some sensual vibes on Saturday night in Cary. Get a bottle of wine.
