march durham3

March finds durham3 at 305 South celebrating the madness that is this in-like-a-lion, out-like-a-lamb month. Come check out the homegrown Triangle mad geniuses, poet Laura Jent, spoken word artist Roo, Durham rockers Red Collar, performance artist Mz. Julee, and films from Flicker. We’ll close out the night with a short open mike and music from a DJ. The doors open at 7pm and open mike sign-up will begin at 7:30. There is a suggested donation of 3$-5$ to support 305 South and the great work they are doing bringing music, art, and the funk to downtown Durham. Get directions or check in at 305 South Dillard Street in downtown Durham. For more information visit the durham3 blog at or email durham3 is sponsored in part by the Carolina Wren Press.

Red Collar- Red Collar are Jason Kutchma – guitar & vocals, Beth-Ann Kutchma, bass guitar & vocals, Michael Jackson-guitar, keys & vocals, Simeon Furman-drums. Four seasoned musicians based in Durham, North Carolina came together in November 2005 to form the layered guitar, working-class sounds of Red Collar. Red Collar strives to bring back the excitement and energy of the live shows they grew up on. In mixing their punk rock roots with blue collar rock and roll, they have developed what they like to call: dance and shout rock and roll. Jason Kutchma’s edgy, gruff vocals are counterpoint to Mike Jackson’s punk rock rants. The Furman/Kutchma straightforward rhythm section keep the loopy guitar licks in check. Red Collar is currently working on an EP for release in the Fall 2006.

Laura Jent- Laura Jent lives in Durham, North Carolina where she works as a nanny and a writer, takes far too many self-portraits, organizes knitting nights, and researches autism.
