Al Riggs, Real Dad
The Cave, Chapel Hill
Much like Elvis Costello, al Riggs releases a new album like every 6 months, and much like Elvis Costello, al's albums are uniformly great, but they're uniform in their greatness that after a while you can forget how good they are, but don't, don't forget how good they are!

Maria Chávez
Duke Coffeehouse, Durham
Maria Chávez is an avant-garde turntablist whose specialty is layering broken chunks of records, scratched-up/skippy records, and other organic chance-producing systems into unique one-time sound collages.

We're especially grateful to her for coming down for this show, since she has some health issues that may restrict her ability to perform for the foreseeable future after this show.
