A co-worker was telling me he ran into a big drum circle in DT Raleigh on a recent Friday night. The way he described it, it sounded like what one might find in Asheville on a nice Friday PM. I'd like to find out more. I'm not a drummer, but these things usually draw "my kind of crowd".

Any info? (Maybe it was a one-time thing, he said the streets were closed off for some kind of festival... I'm hoping it's a recurring event though.)

I know on First Friday, Times Bar usually closes Hargett Street Between Wilmington and Fayetteville and has vendors, beer and often a drum circle. That may have been it.

Sounds like the "Morning Times Market" which takes place on Hargett Street in front of the Morning Times Coffee / Raleigh Times Bar during First Friday's of the Month. They usually have a community drum circle and artists set up along the street from 7-11pm on the first Friday of the month during the warmer months.

AWESOME, thanks U2B and NRG, that is exactly it (reps to both of you). (And I liked them on FB, so I can follow in the future. To reference another recent thread, "now I can get my crunchy on". ;-)
