From live music to a soap star hitting the comedy stage, this week is looking good in the Triangle.
Monday: Fire in the Triangle continues their quarterfinal rounds this week with chefs from The Oxford, Midtown Grille, Market and Jimmy V's.
Tuesday: Urinetown opens at the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts. This musical comedy is a tale of "greed, love and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold." A 20-year drought has led to officials ban public toilets, forcing people to pay to go to the bathroom. A hero emerges to save the day. Heard this show is a riot!
Wednesday: Matchbox Twenty and the Goo Goo Dolls play Time Warner Cable Pavilion at Walnut Creek in Raleigh.
Thursday: General Hospital's Maurice Bernard will perform at Goodnight's Comedy Club. I had no idea that Sonny Corinthos had a sense of humor. Guess he does.
Bonus picks: OC7 continues in downtown Raleigh with Big Something headlining. The Midtown Beach Music Series at North Hills welcomes Liquid Pleasure.
Friday: Country star and reality singing competition TV judge Blake Shelton plays the Time Warner Cable Music Pavilion at Walnut Creek.
