You’ve got Kamasi Washington at Motorco; Benji Hughes at Local 506; Casablanca, one of the best movies ever, on the big screen at the Carolina Theatre (along with 3 other amazing movies); Heather Gordon’s show opening at The Carrack; and the Diamond Cutters (oh, and a game and fireworks, too!) at the DBAP. We simply cannot choose. Close your eyes, point your finger, and stab your screen in the general direction of the list below- we’re certain you’ll come up with a winner.
