Music on the Porch: The Beast
September 27 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Bring a blanket and join us on the Love House lawn on Thursday, September 27th to experience the unique, dynamic music of The Beast. Hailing from Durham, the band is now in its eleventh year of bringing hip hop and jazz together to create their distinguished, genre-bending sound.
The innovators behind the experience are Pierce Freelon as emcee, Eric Hirsh on keyboard, synth, and programming, Stephene Coffman on drums, and Pete Kimosh on bass. Originally meeting at and graduating from UNC Chapel Hill, they have released their second full-length album together called “Woke.” Released last summer, this album focuses on the new future that comes from black and queer empowerment. This album and others can be listened to on Spotify, Soundcloud, YouTube, and their website.
This event is free and open to the public, and parking is free after 5:00 pm in the Park Place parking lot. The Center is also located along free Chapel Hill Transit bus routes A, CL, D, F, NU, and U.
Relax with us as the sunlight wanes for an evening of both brilliant music as well as community.
