Raleigh
Time Travel to Colonial NC
NC Museum of History—Silence your Blackberries, unplug your laptops and go ahead, ditch the Prius: It's time to take a deep breath and step back into history for a glimpse of a simpler times, tunes and an electronic-free lifestyle at this day-long journey into colonial North Carolina. Today's time travel journey makes a pit-stop in Revolution-era N.C., where moms, dads and kids can experience history as they churn butter, write with a quill pen, tie nautical ropes, make Moravian crafts, examine important historical documents and witness military drills. No word on whether we get a peek at the slave quarters. Enjoy the free history lesson today from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. —Kathy Justice


Raleigh
Cy Rawls Benefit
The Pour House—Starting with a double dose of good ol' Raleigh rock from the two-piece-and-pissed The Loners and the frenetic, kinda whacky Sir Arthur & His Royal Knights, this show sounds like a great Saturday night from the start. What's more, this is another benefit for Cy Rawls, the local music booster, DJ, comedian and nice guy diagnosed with cancer in July. But this straw should send you to the show: Rawls made some requests of some friends in Polvo, Birds of Avalon, The Rosebuds, Magic Babies and Double Negative, and they'll honor them as best they can as The Cy Rawlstars. We don't want to reveal too much, but, as Paul Siler reveals, "If you ever thought that Ivan Howard sounded a little bit like Glenn Danzig, then you might want to show up!!" Well said. Here Lies opens at 9 p.m. Tickets are $10. —Grayson Currin


Raleigh
Midtown Hoops
North Hills—Despite North Hills' image crisis (designer labels mingle with the fashionably cheap wares of Target) and its recent Chamber of Commerce-induced identity crisis (this area is now tagged as "Midtown" due to its "increasingly distinct" suburban landscape), this semi-glossy merchandise district is cleaning up shop for charity. Last weekend, Interfaith Food Shuttle made the outdoor mall its playground and this weekend The Salvation Army takes center court with their inaugural 3-on-3 basketball tournament. Grab your sneaks and hit the pavement to duke it out double-elimination style from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Proceeds support Salvation Army Youth Programs.
