Friday 3.28


Ron Brown's One Shot
Page Auditorium—Documentary photography meets modern dance when Ron Brown and Evidence Dance Company present the world premiere of One Shot, a piece inspired by the photography of Charles "Teenie" Harris. See what inspired the choreographer: Harris' photographs of Pittsburgh are on view at Duke's Center for Documentary Studies through April 9, and Brown himself will appear there for a talk Thursday, March 27, at 7 p.m. For more info, visit and —David Fellerath


Sean Costello
Blue Bayou Club—They grow up so fast: Seems like just yesterday Sean Costello was a blues wunderkind, his 14-year-old self driven to open mics (shades of local phenom Slick Ballinger) around Atlanta by his parents. Later in his teens, Costello recorded and toured with Susan Tedeschi just as her career was igniting, his guitar work a major spark. Now a grizzled 28-year-old, Costello is clearly his own man and no one's sideman. His seasoned voice displays as much fiery personality as his playing, and soul influences like O.V. Wright and Eddie Hinton decorate his blues base. Tickets are $14 in advance, and two bucks more at the door. The music starts at 9:30 p.m. —Rick Cornell

Chapel Hill
Nightlight 5-Year Anniversary
Nightlight—Mostly by design and necessity, Nightlight is known as the Triangle's enclave for "out" music. Already this year, Brooklyn noise mammoths Sightings visited, Australia's Justice Yeldham cut his lips making music with glass, and Pennsylvania-via-Japan drummer Tatsuya Nakatani improvised his solo percussion set with Crowmeat Bob. But more than being welcome to weird, Nightlight's most essential function is its openness to most anything, whether it's a 40-band noise festival, a night of sturdy indie rock bands or a round of gentle singer/ songwriters. Five years of booking true upstarts and fringe citizens is a long time, and, tonight, the club deservedly celebrates. Appropriately, you probably didn't see this bill coming: Carrboro's Caltrop slows its blues and amps them to a metallic roar, while Greenboro's Tiger Bear Wolf charges with hardcore gusto and Southern swagger. With Secret Boyfriend and DJ Family Vacation at 9:30 p.m. —Grayson Currin

Citified, Love Language, Rooster
The Pour House—Greensboro's Citified makes gorgeous, generous dream pop that swaps the dissonance of shoegaze progenitors for the gauzy consonance of power-pop: The guitars chime; the textures float; the vocals beckon. Citified turns its dualistic propensities to stretch and to jangle into a fascinating conflict between half-awake and half-asleep. A Rooster for the Masses—hitting the show circuit hard again—is all awake, its post-punk agitation wide-eyed and leery, like a shot in the arm. The Love Language sounds like soul and pop wax melting into one LP on a Califone turntable. Recommended jams. The 10 p.m. show costs $5-$7. —Grayson Currin
