Chapel Hill
Thee Vicars, Pirate Love

The Cave—After SXSW, two foreign bands swing through the Triangle. Britain's Thee Vicars deliver frenetic, fast-paced garage rock with occasional surf-guitar breaks. Led by the whining, nasal vocals of Rev. Mike Whittaker, the group delivers pugnacious, '60s-style pop melodies that recall the Black Lips, simply with more distortion and stronger R&B roots. Named after a New York Dolls song, Pirate Love hails from Norway. While in the same tradition as Thee Vicars, Pirate Love sounds more like cocksure masculinity than fun deviance. The show starts at 10 p.m. Visit www.caverntavern.com. —Andrew Ritchey



Chapel Hill
Pilobolus

Memorial Hall, UNC Campus—American Dance Festival favorite Pilobolus returns to the Triangle for a one-night-only event to showcase four dances, one of which—Redline by Jonathan Wolken—originally premiered at ADF last summer. Pilobolus, known for juxtaposing amazing feats of athleticism with aestheticism, reached the apex of popular culture when they performed at the 2007 Academy Awards. Now for the Triangle, they dust off an old favorite, Day Two, which had its premiere in 1980 and re-enacts the second day of creation. Also on the program are Rushes, by choreographers Avshalom Pollak and Inbal Pinto, and Duet, which examines love's different stages.The show is at 7:30 p.m., with tickets for UNC students $10 and the general public $30–$75. Seats are limited, so don't wait. Visit www.carolinaperformingarts.org. —Belem Destefani
