Neil Young: Heart of Gold

N.C. MUSEUM OF ART--Still searching for the heart of gold, Neil Young appears rejuvenated after some health problems in the concert film Neil Young: Heart of Gold. Playing in front of an audience in Nashville's Ryman Auditorium while playing an old Hank Williams guitar, Young runs through a set heavy on material from Prairie Wind, his 2005 album. Jonathan Demme, who has displayed a deft touch in such performance films as Stop Making Sense and Swimming to Cambodia, received excellent notices for his work here. See it at 9 p.m. outdoors. Tickets are $3, free to NCMA members. --David Fellerath


Eastern Music Festival: Alejandro Escovedo

TRIAD STAGE--Courtesy of its passion, inventiveness and emotional depth, Alejandro Escovedo's work in this decade and the last has earned him comparisons to Van Morrison, The Band and Townes Van Zandt--a roots/soul holy trinity, for sure. Escovedo, a punker turned roots-rock troubadour, chamber-rock band leader and deity, revels in finding the beauty in volume and turning up the volume on beauty. With a brilliant band and an adventurous, John Cale-produced record, he's going strong after a death's door battle with hepatitis C complications. Tickets are $25 for the 9 p.m. show. See
