Get Out 

Music worth leaving the house to hear this week

B-Girl Festival III
The Pour House Music Hall
Friday, Feb. 6, 10 p.m.

A few years ago, when Travis "Charlye Cockpit" Keyes and Pauly "Snubnzoe" Ervin went looking for a way to promote Mother Nature--the sole female emcee on their local 21st Century Records label--find some gigs, they put together the first B-Girl Festival, a one-of-a-kind gathering of female rappers and DJ's that has the hip-hop nation buzzing. Remy Martin--who spent three years collaborating with the late Big Pun and Fat Joe's Terror Squad--will headline the third B-Girl Festival, an unprecedented event for femcees on the East Coast. Mother Nature, Isis and Shelly B will also be on hand with Luv, Clock da Vigga, Lady K and--of course--88.7's DJ Chela between sets. --Grayson Currin

Barn Burning
The Cave
Thursday, Feb. 5

The wall of sound favored by Providence, Rhode Island's rootsy Barn Burning is constructed of layers of dobros, strummed acoustic guitars, and violas masquerading as weathered stone. It's painstakingly, even defiantly, hand-built and sometimes precariously stacked, but ultimately sturdy. And the comparisons to early R.E.M. that dot this sextet's reviews fit, thanks to words that are often shrouded in an air of mystery and music that's wrapped in whatever's the New England equivalent of kudzu. However, the laid-back delivery is much more "Perfect Circle" than "Radio Free Europe."

This burning barn tends to smolder much more than it rages. Feel the warmth. --Rick Cornell

Vassar Clements with The Carter Brothers
Community Church Coffeehouse
Saturday, Feb 7.

At 75, Clements plays on. He's been an innovator since the late 1940s when he joined Bill Monroe's Bluegrass Boys, recording his own works and laying down tracks over the years with the likes of Stephane Grappelli, Dave Holland, The Grateful Dead, Linda Ronstadt and Paul McCartney. The Carter Brothers, Dan and Tim, are North Carolina-born kin to Mother Mabel, Sarah and A.P. They still play some of the originals, but ya gotta wonder what A.P. would think about adding wah-wah to the banjo.

The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $22 in advance, $25 day of the show. Call 942-1775 for details or

All Astronauts, des ark, Cantwell, Gomez & Jordan
Thursday, Feb. 5

All Astronauts are touring their latest, Navigation Songs, just out on Winston-Salem's Lookalive Records. The presence on the bill of Cantwell and company along with des ark guarantees a ripping, pedal-to-the-metal evening.

IFC One World Concert
United Church of Chapel Hill
Saturday, Feb. 7

The kickoff concert in what IFC hopes to become an annual event featuring the Latin sounds of Carlos Salvo and klezmer ensemble South of Delancey. The concert, sponsored by United Church and Chapel Hill Kehillah, starts at 8 p.m. Cost is one 'love offering' for IFC. Refreshments will be provided.
