Durham
Greg Brown, Chava Alberstein
Page Auditorium, Duke Campus—One of the most intriguing offerings of Duke Performance's apropos Art/ Politics/Now Series, this split bill connects Chava Alberstein, Israel's most important voice, with Greg Brown, Iowa's leather-voiced, steely-eyed troubadour. Born in Poland the year of Israel's formation, Alberstein has often served as her country's cultural consciousness, once putting her life on the line by rewording a Passover song to criticize Israeli treatment of Palestinians in the late '80s. That decision resonates with Brown's ideology. In 2006, he sang, "If everyone is praying to whatever gods there may be/ I'd say we all better pray to each other for forgiveness before we lose our sanity." Tickets are $5-$34 for an 8 p.m. start. —Grayson Currin


Carrboro
Every Time I Die, The Bronx
Cat's Cradle—This show sounds a little like smashing a beer can against your head—a bit painful and pretty intense, but surprisingly redemptive: Every Time I Die wavers between growls and rasps, backed by Southern rock riffs. The Big Dirty, the title of the band's latest LP, is appropriate. The Bronx packs equal punch with throaty, melodic vocals. Stick to Your Guns, My Hero is Me and The Hottness open the circle pit at 7 p.m. for $15 a body. —Elizabeth Lilly
