Carolina Idol & Ridin' Wit Joe Crack

When: Sat., Jan. 10, 2 p.m. 2015

American Idol first aired in 2002, beaming its judges’ trollish behavior into American living rooms during reality TV’s golden age. It’s spawned a host of imitators, one of which comes to Durham Saturday afternoon. It’s worth noting, though, that the local version has a more compassionate impetus than the national one. A reformed gangbanger launched the nonprofit Campaign4change to combat violence and drug culture; Campaign4change organizes, while a portion of the proceeds goes to breast cancer research. Not a bad twist on the tired trope. —Corbie Hill
