Romeo and Juliet
  • Romeo and Juliet

DUKE CAMPUSRomeo and Juliet, poster children for star-crossed love, goes back to the 'hood, a la West Side Story, in the Classical Theatre of Harlem's interpretation of the play. Set in modern-day Harlem, this version features West Indian music and hip-hop beats and runs at Reynolds Theater tonight and tomorrow at 8 p.m. Check out for more info. —Karlie Justus

CAROLINA THEATRE—Anchored by steadfast drummer Yonrico Scott, Trucks' band is competent and tight, if sometimes hammy. Still, Trucks plays his electric guitar in big, swooping sweeps and compact, tight flutters. His unimpeachable sense of space and timing recalls John Coltrane and, of course, the late guitarist whose band he now plays with, Duane Allman. Tickets for an 8 p.m. start are $34-$39. —Grayson Currin

Chapel Hill
HELL—Excitement! Charisma! Energy! Rhyming duo Juan Huevos puts frantic, slightly maniacal wordplay over aggressive but playful beats. Prepare for twists about ponies and horns over arpeggiated Casiotones and beds of hot fuzz. Chest Pains lifts rules from what you may consider punk rock, indulging roots with an abandon for conventions too many have forgotten. Wild! Free at 10 p.m. —Grayson Currin
