Minor league baseball does promotions better than any other league across the entire world of sports. Yes, that’s typically out of necessity due to challenges like ever-changing rosters, unpredictable summer weather, and the fact that it’s baseball. But no matter how you feel about the sport, North Carolina offers hands down the best minor league baseball in the country, and the world-famous Durham Bulls are our crown jewel. Tonight at the beautiful Durham Bulls Athletic Park, the Bulls will be joining forces with Durham’s other worst-kept secret by presenting the 4th annual Merge Records Night.
Founded by Superchunk’s own Mac McCaughan and Laura Ballance, Merge has grown from a small indie label to become one of the most exciting labels in all of music, featuring Arcade Fire, Bob Mould, The Mountain Goats, and Wye Oak, among hundreds of others. Tickets to the 7:05PM game can be purchased through the Merge website, including an $8.99 terrace ticket that includes a 14-track Merge sampler CD.
