Raleigh
RATDOG
MEYMANDI HALL—Bob Weir's RatDog started in 1995 as a duo with bassist Rob Wasserman, who has since left the band. Now a six-piece with horns and keys, RatDog remains largely inessential, serving mostly to revisit The Dead's deep impression upon music with plodding, rootsy takes on the classics. Still, Weir's unorthodox rhythms and wobbly voice hold their intrigue, even if this has all been done better thousands of times before. Tickets are $25-$50 for a 7:30 p.m. start. —Grayson Currin

TRIANGLE TAIKO
N.C. MUSEUM OF HISTORY—Formed by the non-profit Nippon Club of the Triangle, Triangle Taiko performs Taiko music, a high-powered, traditional form of Japanese drumming. Currently, the group is 32 members strong and there's a standing invitation for anyone with a passion for drumming to join. The free show starts at 3 p.m. —Dan Strobel

JANE BERNSTEIN
QUAIL RIDGE BOOKS & MUSIC—Jane Bernstein will discuss and sign Rachel in the World: A Memoir. The work details the hardships and triumphs of Bernstein and her daughter, Rachel, who suffers from physical disabilities, as they attempt to carve out an independent identity in the world for Rachel. The event begins at 3 p.m. For more info, visit quailridgebooks.booksense.com or call 828-1588. —Ashley Roberts
