Metal Scene in the Triangle?

Hi! I'm moving to the Raleigh/Durham area in a couple of weeks from Rhode Island. Among other genres, I'm particularly into doom/sludge metal/ heavy stoner rock (think Windhand, Electric Wizard, Weedeater, Sleep, etc.).

There is a pretty great local scene in RI for both venue shows and warehouse shows, and I'm used to being able to go see a really great band (local and/or touring) every, say, 2 weeks, or if there isn't a show I can usually go out with friends and spot a few people that are into the same sort of thing.

Anyway – it would make me feel really at home to be able to go and hang out in some weird metal dive bar where I might rest my weary eyes on some folks that haven't washed their long hair in a few days and have patches sewn onto their ripped denim vests. Does this sound like a place you know of? Do you know these people? Are YOU one of these people? Are there any good shows coming up?

Thanks in advance for your recommendations!
