Music On the Lawn - Old Ceremony - Durham

Summer is getting into full swing and Music on the Lawn at American Tobacco Campus continues! These are free outdoor shows in downtown Durham.

It is highly recommended to bring your camping/beach style chair or a blanket (it's called music on the lawn for a reason). smile Sometimes it gets very crowded, so get there as soon as you can, by 530 if possible. I won't be able to hold space for a bunch of us if it's very crowded.

The music starts at about 6pm, but come when you can after work, bring your own picnic dinner and drinks (they state no coolers or glass) or buy something there.

There is usually free parking very near the event (garage above and below ATC and also at Main and Corcoran), but if there is a ballgame or DPAC event that night, parking may be $2-4.

The Old Ceremony draws plays lush, literate rock.

With over six years of touring and four albums under their belt, the Durham/Chapel Hill, NC band occupies its own darkly lit corner of the musical world. It is a corner filled with ominous rumblings and world-weary but hopeful characters.

TOC has performed with CAKE, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Chuck Berry, Polyphonic Spree, Mountain Goats, and Avett Brothers, and was included in PASTE Magazine's "Top 100 Albums of 2006." They are currently working on their first film score, for a new Ed Asner film, and Their newest album, Tender Age, is available now on Alyosha Records.

TOC is led by songwriter Django Haskins, and includes bassist Matt Brandau, drummer Dan Hall, vibes/organist Mark Simonsen, and violinist/keyboardist Gabriel Pelli.

    Cherry and I were there. Where was everyone else? I got a lot of looks for saving space and then no one showed up.
