ADAM RUST
INTERNATIONALIST BOOKS—Manufactured housing is making a comeback in the United States, but there's still a long way to go before it offers buyers consistently affordable, quality homes. In This is My Home, Adam Rust discusses what needs to be done to make manufactured housing successful, as shown through the stories of low-income North Carolinians. Tonight at 7 p.m., Rust will talk about what can be done to use manufactured housing as a tool for people, rather than accepting the status quo—a hornet's nest of problems.

TENNIS & THE MENNONITES AND CREEPING WEEDS
THE CAVE—I'm not so sure either our own Tennis & The Mennonites or Philadelphia's Creeping Weeds has found its identity as a band yet, but that's a presumptuous criterion, anyway. Their search for diversity is entertainment enough: Both bands take cues from indie rock idols you'll be able to name, from Tennis & the Mennonites' nervy but recognizable Saddle Creek spirit to their slipshod Pavement exuberance and exploratory sonic ambivalence. Creeping Weeds do the background/foreground call-and-response Modest Mouse mastered, but they take occasional guitar forays more reminiscent of another Pacific Northwest mainstay called Built to Spill. The show starts at 10 p.m. —Grayson Currin
