Durham
Third Friday
Downtown—Back-to-school blues got you down? Unleash your inner onomatopoeia at The Scrap Exchange's Sound from Around Town program, where you can drum, clang, scrap, jingle and shake with three visiting artists; or celebrate with the Triangle Black and White Photography Group at the opening of their new exhibit Private Investigations at Through This Lens Gallery. The city's newest contemporary art gallery, Golden Belt Artist Studios' ROOM 100 will be making its debut, and there is free face painting at Joe Van Gogh coffee shop by artist Moriah McCall. Of course, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em: Fifteen teaching artists will be doing demonstrations of their work as part of a Back to School Showcase at the CCB Plaza. Most programs welcome visitors from 6 to 9 p.m. Afterward, head over to Club 9 for a free salsa lesson at 10 p.m. and dancing until 2 a.m. at the Cimmaron Latin Dance Benefit. The $10 cover charge goes toward El Kilombo Intergalactico, which offers programs for working-class people of color and migrant communities. Celebrate now before your school year bedtime goes into effect. Visit www.thirdfridaydurham.com. —Jessica Fuller

Benefit for Lump Gallery
Lump Gallery—As it enters its 13th year, Lump Gallery still provides the Triangle with a venue for some of the most offbeat and intriguing alternative art projects around. To help continue its operations, Lump is holding a benefit concert featuring performances by locals Phon and Schooner from 7-11 p.m. Donations will be accepted at the door. For more information, visit lumpgallery.com, lumpdocket.blogspot.com or call 821-9999. —Zack Smith


Chapel Hill
Bottle Shock
Chelsea Theater—The premise of the new indie Bottle Shock is a real 1976 blind tasting of French and American wines. It was somewhat casually held outside of Paris as a good-will gesture towards America on its 200th birthday. The real shock came when two Napa Valley wines—a Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon—bested famous French wines to the disbelief and consternation of the all-French jury. It is hard to overstate the importance this had on estate-bottled American wine. The heyday of jug wines was over. Thankfully, only the end of the film deals with the actual tasting; it's not a France-bashing film. Instead, the story uses the tasting as a springboard to illustrate the fervor in the just-about-to-explode California wine trade, and the multibillion dollar industry that would ensue. —Arturo Ciompi
