Second: Violet Vector and the Lovely Lovelies are into some serious Shangri Las organ girl-group thang, and have a sunshine single called "Can You Dig It?" Yes, please. Dry Heathens kick it off. Donations for the 9 p.m. show.—Chris Toenes

NORTH RALEIGH ARTS & CREATIVE THEATRE—This 1987 Eric Bogosian play, filmed by Oliver Stone the following year, explores the problem of a controversial talk show host whose show is about to be picked up by a nationwide network. The show starts at 8 p.m. at 7713-51 Lead Mine Road. Tickets are $12. For info, visit or call 866-0228. —Iesha Brown
