Music in the Gardens: Caleb Caudle
Duke Performances – Winston-Salem singer, songwriter, and bandleader Caleb Caudle spent years shaping and sharpening his approach to country music before arriving, last year, at a triumph called Carolina Ghost. These eleven songs, which earned raves from Rolling Stone and The Huffington Post, recall a classic truck-stop mixtape, full of yearning steel guitar, assured and direct choruses, and first-person protagonists who have seen better days and expect to again. Newly sober and back in North Carolina, Caudle delivers it all with believable grit, as if he’s singing these songs during the long drive home. General Admission Tickets: $10, $5 Duke students & employees, Free ages 12 & under **Pick-Four or More discount does not apply.** Duke Performances’ 2017 Music in the Gardens is made possible, in part, with support from Duke Continuing Studies, Duke Summer Session, and the Sarah P. Duke Gardens.

Meetup—Getting Railroaded In Wake County
Wake County Libertarian Party – If anybody knows "Who will build the roads?" It is Julie Tisdale, City and County Policy Analyst and Research Manager with the John Locke Foundation. While sly politicians sell big projects like P.T. Barnum sells Feejee Mermaids, Ms Tisdale is getting to the bottom of important questions about the impact of these projects on local taxpayers. Join the Wake County Libertarians in an enlightening and engaging discussion about the Wake Transit System and the billions of dollars getting run out of town on a rail. Check out the biggest affiliate of the coolest political party in North Carolina (not to mention the fastest-growing party in Wake County). Libertarians aspire to protect all of your rights, all of the time. Have questions about how we might go about that? Come on by any Wednesday night at the Oak & Dagger…worst case, there’s great food and beer! This week’s meetup host is David Ulmer, WakeLP chair. Ms. Tisdale’s presentation is scheduled to start at 7:30—come early, get a good seat, and order food and drink!—and will also be webcast via our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ULeUNQkzBq0
