KENNY ROBY'S MERCY FILTER
THE POUR HOUSE—A Kenny Roby solo show, with a feel smack between that of Ron Sexsmith and John Prine, is compelling enough. But putting Roby in the middle of a full-band ruckus is another animal entirely, with punk roots and gospel shadings allowed to bloom fully like a rock 'n' roll moonflower. The Houstons and Tony Tidwell round out the triple-bill. Tickets are $5-$7 for a 10 p.m. show —Rick Cornell

Chapel Hill
ROMEO AND JULIET
PAUL GREEN THEATRE—Get your fill of "wherefore art thous" at PlayMakers Repertory Company's interpretation of a Romeo and Juliet in a modern setting. Director Davis McCallum brings the infamous citizens of Verona to UNC Chapel Hill's campus from Sept. 26-Oct. 14. Tickets for tonight's 8 p.m. show are $10 to $40. Visit www.playmakersrep.org for info. —Karlie Justus
