Midtown Dickens are getting back together for a night of why nots.

To benefit Durham For All. To have fun. To why not. Come say hi.

Opening the show are: DUNUMS and The Wigg Report + Charles Latham!

DUNUMS is our music, multi-media, and collaborative performance project led by Sijal Nasralla since 2009. In Arabic, «dunum» (dūnam) is an arbitrary unit of land measurement, approximately 1 Hectare, used differently to quantify space among villages throughout Palestine. A dunum can be the shrinking or exploding of space, a personal testament to the tremendous land loss and/or the emotional/material transformation brought by settler colonialism.

Based in NC, shifting players and contributors to us have recorded, performed, and created in direct response to events commonly known as «summer in Gaza» or «revolution in Syria.» We envision our work and creativity as inextricable from our rooted histories in Palestine as well as our assimilations into the american south.

The Wigg Report + Charles Latham
One of Durham's longest running bands, the Wigg Report are bike-riding purveyors of lo-fi, DIY acoustic punk rock that defies description, though they have been compared to Pixies, the Violent Femmes, and The Beat Happening. Christine Fantini (drums), Stephen Mullaney (guitar and vocals) and Ben Riseling (saxophone) will be joined by Durham singer-songwriter Charles Latham on bass, who will take the lead on a handful of his off-kilter folk and country infused songs with members of the Wigg Report and special guests.
Both Latham and the Wigg have deep roots with Midtown Dickens, making this an unmissable night of Durham music.
