365 PLAYS/ 365 DAYS & THE AMERICA PLAY
COMMON GROUND THEATER—What happens when you write one play every day for a year? Come find out with Weeks 29 and 30 in Suzan-Lori Parks 365 Plays/365 Days. This reflection on artistic routine serves as the stagewarmer to Parks' The America Play, a haunting commentary on black identity as determined by white history. 365 Plays/365 Days is a free event beginning at 7:30. The America Play begins at 8 p.m. with $14 admission. For more info, visit www.cgtheatre.com/events. —Sarah Lupton

CHEST PAINS, BLAG'ARD
LOCAL 506—Durham three-piece Chest Pains pounds out snarling mid-paced hardcore, recalling the highlights of the early SST Records catalog. Meanwhile, bill sharers Fighting Poseidon and Blag'ard take their respective stabs at the indie rock that made record execs gaga over the Triangle in the '90s. Blag'ard even boasts singer/guitarist Joe Taylor of the late, great Capsize 7. This will be good, and it's free. Show up at 10 p.m. —Rich Ivey
