SADLACK'S—Roots music from the shadows of skyscrapers, Brooklyn six-piece Yarn may call the Big Apple home but they nestle their sound in Nashville sunsets. Moving between scruffy and a twitter of bluegrass, lead singer Blake Christiana mines his heavy Americana sound from lyrics shaped by the genteel sincerity of Gram Parsons. His band follows suite, pairing Christiana's lo-fi hooks with articulate string accents. Catch them at Sad's tonight for free at 6 p.m. or preview them at Slim's on the 15th at 10 p.m. with The Vints. —Kathy Justice

QUAIL RIDGE BOOKS & MUSIC—Local crime reporter Amanda Lamb will discuss her book Smotherhood: Wickedly Funny Confessions from the Early Years. The WRAL reporter tells of her experiences that add color to the unruly world of parenting. The event begins at 3 p.m. Call 828-1588 or visit for more info. —Ashley Roberts
