Kat Robichaud will take on the National Anthem in Charlotte

In the Weekend section of today’s paper, you’ll find a piece catching up on the doings of Raleigh expatriate Kat Robichaud, who nowadays calls San Francisco home but will be back around these parts next week to play a show at Slim’s. And while she’s in the Carolinas, Robichaud will also sing the National Anthem at a high-profile venue -- at the Carolina Panthers’ Oct. 5 game against the Chicago Bears in Charlotte.

That’s a pretty cool gig, and good for her; although one can’t help wishing that the NFL was, you know, less icky these days.
