for those about to Rock the Cape!
Mark your calendars for Friday, May 30 and make your way to the Koru Village Beach Klub in Avon for the second annual Rock the Cape Music Festival.
“Hey Outer Banks we can’t wait to get back to Koru’s Beach Klub for the Dare County Arts Council Fundraiser. It’s gonna be rockin’ grooves for surfing feet with the deepest reverb on the beach. All for a cause that can’t be beat! Good times guaranteed,” said Rick Miller, lead guitar and founding member of Southern Culture on the Skids.
It promises to be a day amazing surf music with some of the best regional bands taking the stage for the all day event. In addition to Southern Culture on the Skids, Eddy and the Rip Tides from the Outer Banks and the Virginia’s Cashmere Jungle Lords will be digging into the archives of surf music for what promises to be a great day by the beach.
This year, Rock the Cape will feature a live art happening with a Cape Hatteras mural painted collectively by the audience, led by local artist Chris Kemp of the Garage Arts Guild. The live art happening is hosted by the Outer Banks Surfrider Foundation and Milepost Magazine.
Proceeds from Rock the Cape benefit Dare County Arts Council’s arts programming, with a special emphasis on arts programs for Hatteras Island and music lessons for children who otherwise would not be able to afford them. Kids from DCAC’s music program, the Community Music School, will perform at the show as well.
Music begins at 4:00 p.m. and goes ’til 10. Tickets for the event are $12 in advance and $18 at the door. Tickets are available now online at Brown Paper Tickets. For more information visit Dare County Arts Council at darearts.org.
