Chapel Hill
Endless Mic
Local 506—Chapel Hill's Trekky Records is best known for its stable of indie-pop acts, but Endless Mic proves it knows something about hip hop, too. Now a trio featuring beatmaker Deez alongside emcees Stu! and Zano, it's celebrating the release of The All New Super Exclusive Al Gore Bongwater Club Mixtape Volume One tonight. Def Jux comparisons are inevitable (Aesop Rock collaborator/ Camp Lo member Geechi Suede guests on the mixtape), but its diversity shows in samples that range from the old standbys ("La Di Da Di") to the new Daft Punk bit ("Something About Us"). And is it the first hip-hop group to glorify PBR? Download the mixtape for free at www.endlessmic.com/mixtape.htm and pay $6 for the 9:30 p.m. show. Edward Teach opens. —Spencer Griffith

Pittsboro
Sarah Hall
McIntyre's Fine Books—Already earning comparisons to The Handmaid's Tale and Children of Men, Sarah Hall's novel Daughters of the North paints a harrowing picture of a near-future England, where whole parts of the country are underwater and reproduction is only allowed by lottery. The protagonist, known as "Sister," flees her repressive marriage to a rebel colony at a northern farm, where she must discover if she has what it takes to become a freedom fighter. Hall, who was previously nominated for the Booker Prize for her novel The Electric Michelangelo, appears at McIntyre's Fine Books in Fearrington Village at 2 p.m. to read from her new work. For more info, call McIntyre's at 542-3030. Hall also appears at the Regulator Bookshop Tuesday, April 15, at 7 p.m. —Zack Smith



Carrboro
Susan Tedeschi
Cat's Cradle—More than capable of holding her own with bluesy guitar stylings, Susan Tedeschi handed over the ax-wielding duties to Doyle Bramhall II and her husband Derek Trucks for her last album, the Grammy-nominated Hope and Desire. The move allowedTedeschi to unleash her soulful pipes, like a raw Bonnie Raitt pushing a set that runs from Redding and Mayfield to Dylan, Jagger and Richards. Sacred steel combo The Lee Boys are behind only Robert Randolph & The Family Band in shining the spotlight on the House of God tradition, and, like Randolph, it's collaborated with the North Mississippi Allstars as well. It opens the 8:30 p.m. show. Tickets are $20-$22. —Spencer Griffith
