Raleigh
Monsters of Death

Volume 11 Tavern—Fuck a Monster of Folk, right? This six-band melee, presented by premier stateside metal outlet Decibel magazine as the Monsters of Death Tour, puts a few international threshers—Poland, Wales, a few Frenchmen from Canada—alongside three ferocious domestics. Though Polish headliners Vader are the most punishing and precise of the lot, look for the undercards to attempt to push death metal into unlikely spaces: Welsh weirdos The Amenta seem strangely indebted to Faust (the band ... and the character, one supposes) and industrial savagery, pushing their blasts through scrims of drone and general disorder. Arrive early for Augury, French-Canadians doing blackened death metal with a prog air, but stay late for Decrepit Birth, whose music is as heavy as their name is morose. Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. show run $20. See www.volume11tavern.com. —Grayson Currrin



Carrboro
A Child's Christmas in Wales

The ArtsCenter—Dylan Thomas' sentimental story of childhood, originally written as a radio production, is one of the most lyrical slice-of-life descriptions of a family gathering ever written, capturing the magic of a wintery holiday. It reflects what Christmas can represent to a child and offers a glimpse into the celebration of Christmas in another country. This production runs Dec. 11-20, with show times at 7 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sundays. Tickets are $10, $8 for seniors and students. Santa photo ops (bring your own camera) and The ArtCenter's annual crafts fair precede tomorrow's show. Visit www.artscenterlive.org. —Zack Smith


Raleigh
Cinderella

Fletcher Theater, Progress Energy Center—It's safe to say that Cinderella is every little girl's fantasy role model—perhaps to the chagrin of their mothers. After a lifetime of drudgery, she slips on some couture creations, snags a hot piece of high-ranking nobility and lives happily ever after. Sign me up. Raleigh Little Theatre presents the classic tale—versions of which were told in antiquity—in English pantomime for their 26th annual holiday show. By the way, English pantomime involves talking, singing and dancing. The show runs through Dec. 20; tickets are $17-$27. Visit www.raleighlittletheatre.org. —Sarah Ewald
