Cary Weekend: CD Launch, Monster Initiative & More


Cary, NC — Mid-summer in Cary. No giant musical acts in town this weekend and the soccer frenzy has subsided (for the moment). But it’s still a weekend with plenty to do in the Greater Containment Area.

Whether you’re grilling or chilling, Brooklyn or Bollywood, there’s something good for you at the Saturday morning farmers markets in Cary. The rain and cooler temps have produced a bumper crop of basil and sweet, well-developed corn (a rarity in Dixie). The corn is really good roasted on the grill.

From 12 to 6 on Saturday, Black Irish hip hop company and Town of Cary present the Monster Initiative Contemporary Dance Workshop at Cary Arts Center.

UnVined, that cool little wine bar downstairs at the corner of Harrison and Chatham, has a painting class at 3 PM and a CD debut with Shenette Jones at 7.

Speaking of cool, Six String is back (recent story) with Claire Holley and The Jon Shain Trio, Saturday night at The Cary Theater. The show will be cabaret style, with some of the seats removed to make way for cozy tables. Get there early to get a good spot.
