Chapel Hill


NIGHTLIGHT--The most important noise show to come to Nightlight since the floors were left covered in blood and glass at No Future Fest in June, this triple bill features the Chapel Hill noise of either Secret Boyfriend or Boyzone. Touring headliners Iovae and Watersports contrast in pretty amazing ways. Cincinnati's Iovae bears down hard with oscillators, tapes and turntables in impossibly heavy invasions, while Watersports goes light, fuzz and hum and glitches replicating a bewildering found sound aesthetic. Wires go live at 10 p.m. Bring $5. --Grayson Currin


ADF: Shen Wei

DUKE UNIVERSITY--Shen Wei's 2006 American Dance Festival stand opens with Maps--a whirlwind of motion choreographed to Steve Reich's The Desert Music--followed by the world premiere of Re- (Part I), a careful, distended motion piece inspired by his travels in Tibet. See the closing today atReynolds Industries Theater at 2 and 8 p.m. Tickets for the nearly sold-out performances are $39.
