No matter which side of House Bill 2 you stand on, it’s hard to disagree with the the proposition that the controversy over North Carolina’s so-called “bathroom law” has been a gigantic drag - leaving a wave of canceled concerts, sporting events and business relocations in its wake. Locally, however, HB2 has inspired a lot of North Carolina musicians to put on benefit shows for groups lobbying to overturn the law. One of the biggest happens Sunday, “Stand Against HB2,” featuring an A-list lineup of stars through the years -- Love Language, dB’s, The Veldt, Tres Chicas, the reunited Fabulous Knobs, 6 String Drag and a bunch more.

The music starts at noon Sunday at Carrboro’s Cat’s Cradle and tickets are $15-$20. See catscradle.com for details.
