Carrboro
KMFDM, Angelspit

Cat's Cradle—When it comes to no-nonsense industrial dance music, KMFDM founder Sascha Konietzko stands shoulder to shoulder with Ministry's Al Jourgensen. Beneath the synthetic beats and gated drums, crushing guitar repetition, dyspeptic samples and ominous air of malevolence is a coy social critique skewering the fetish industry for narcissism, hedonism and violence, another aspect they share with Ministry. KMFDM's dark, gothic sensibility possesses a strong undercurrent of self-mockery that loosens the straps of their claustrophobic, hard-charging roar. "Gobble up the crap we feed you/ We don't really love and need you/ We just want your cold, hard cash," they sing on "Bitches (For Your Riches)" off their latest, Blitz.

"They're going for that antimarketing dollar," Bill Hicks would say. "That's a very good market." It's a window into their irreverently sinister display, and a particularly redemptive element of a chest-collapsing rumble that often wearies nonbelievers. Give them $20-$23 of your cold, hard cash at 8 p.m. Angelspit opens. See www.catscradle.com. —Chris Parker


Chapel Hill
Americans In France, Rooftop Vigilantes

Nightlight—Americans in France are a restless mess of wire, yelping loquacious verses and bashing out distorted chords and ragged beats while skewering the legacies of obvious touchstones like Pavement and the Violent Femmes. The Chapel Hill trio shares off-kilter, man-woman harmonies with opening Virginia quartet Rooftop Vigilantes. The Vigilantes show love to their Lawrence, Kan., hometown by adding a touch of the heartland to rambunctious, rough-hewn rock rolled in fuzzy guitars and synth sprees. The show starts at 9:30 p.m. See www.nightlightclub.com. —Spencer Griffith


Raleigh
Patricia Harman

Quail Ridge Books & Music—Patricia Harman's The Blue Cotton Gown: A Midwife's Memoir recounts her journey from footloose hippie to passionate practitioner and advocate of better and more holistic Ob-Gyn services for women. After decades of operating a small clinic in Morgantown, W.Va., with her physician husband, drastically increased insurance premiums forced her to give up delivering babies. She used her new free time to write her book, a collection of wisdom drawn from three decades of providing care to women from drastically varied backgrounds but all united in their need for assistance in delivering their children. Her talk begins at 7:30 p.m. Visit www.quailridgebooks.com. —David Fellerath
