DURHAM
At the Vanishing Point
Manbites Dog Theater—Playwright Naomi Iizuka brings the work of photographer Ralph Eugene Meatyard to life with At the Vanishing Point. Meatyard is famous for his work with people wearing masks, set in his hometown of Lexington, Kentucky. Described as illustrating "a delicate psychology of human interaction," his photography complements Iizuka's writing to create this beautiful story of the spirit and simplicity of a town and its people.

CHAPEL HILL
BOBBY ELLIS, OBEAH AKKOMPOMG
BLEND—In the days of Jamaican reggae's innovations in the early '60s, horns were big and Bobby Ellis was there in Kingston arranging pieces. He also played trumpet with the day's heavies, including Jimmy Cliff, Bunny Wailer and Bob Marley. Tonight, he's matched with vocalists Obeah Akkompomg, Original Messenjah and Cayenne "The Lion King" backed by Prince Pankhi and the I Engourage Band. The beat burns at 10 p.m. Bring $10. —Chris Toenes
