Chapel Hill
Scott Langley at the Death Penalty Project
BCBS Auditorium of the Hooker Center—Freelance photojournalist and activist against the death penalty Scott Langley speaks at UNC today about the public exhibit of his photographs (see above) and his work—including a position as an Amnesty International USA State Death Penalty Coordinator since 2004—the same year he and his wife founded the Raleigh Catholic Worker Hospitality House to help families of North Carolina death row prisoners. For more info, visit www.carolinacreativecampus.org or call 843-1833. —Megan Stein


Raleigh
Shostakovich Pub Concert
Humble Pie—This intimate evening concert highlights one of Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich's most intriguing pieces, String Quartet No. 8. Both private and emotional, this composition is dedicated to "the victims of fascism and war." Presented and orchestrated by the N.C. Symphony, this concert is part of the week-long Hamlet and Shostakovich festival, culminating in the Symphony's presentation of Shostakovich's famous score for the 1964 film Hamlet. The free concert begins at 7:30 p.m. —Kathy Justice

Humble Pie is located at 317 S. Harrington St. Reservations, which are encouraged, can be made by calling 829-9222.


Raleigh
Mando Saenz
The Pour House—A Mexican-born, Texas-bred singer/songwriter, Mando Saenz's dusty country is keyed to a Siroc-smooth tenor that unwinds lonesome, loping tales of the dispossessed. His debut, Watertown, is swathed in a gauzy distant pedal-steel ache that feels both resigned and resolved. Six years after Watertown's initial release, Saenz finally follows it up with the much-anticipated Bucket. The free show starts at 9 p.m. —Chris Parker
