Raleigh
STEVE RILEY & THE MAMOU PLAYBOYS
HIDEAWAY BBQ—Merlefest 1997, and as I approach a festival tent, I sense bodies in motion even before I hear the music that's driving them. Inside are Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys, the two-steppingest Cajun band in the land (when they're not the waltzingest) and an outfit that mixes the trad with the innovative and somehow keeps all camps happy. Hideaway BBQ is made of sturdier stuff than canvas, but Riley and company should still transform the place into a small dance hall. Tickets are $18 in advance and $20 at the door. Motion starts at 9:30 p.m. —Rick Cornell

Durham
WE BE JAMMIN'
HAYTI HERITAGE CENTER—If it's not hot enough for you today, head down to a show at Hayti that aims to replicate the sweat, dirt and heat of classic juke joint culture. Although the show will feature the work of Robin Holder, we're told that the walls will be packed "jelly tight" with work by others, including Benny Andrews and Andre Leon Gray. The Lyda Moore Merrick Gallery is open Monday-Friday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. We Be Jammin' closes Monday, July 30. For more information, visit www.hayti.org/exhibits. —David Fellerath
