Raleigh
The Connells
The Pour House—I moved to North Carolina in August 1987, but I didn't truly become a citizen until buying the Connells' Boylan Heights LP. Upon purchasing it, a confetti of pine needles, acorns and two styles of barbecue fell. Charles Kuralt shook my hand. And "All the way to Boylan Heights" soared from the record store speakers—part Smiths, part Southern pop, all Raleigh. Catch the Connells in its natural habitat. Show time is 10 p.m., tickets are $15. —Rick Cornell



Raleigh
The Hard Lessons
Slim's—While the Lessons came of age amid the Detroit garage rock phenomena, it's outgrown those influences, branching into indie and power pop that parlays its bouncy melodies and boy/ girl harmonies to fine advantage. Its multifaceted latest, B&G Sides, shines like Jessica Simpson's pores before a Proactiv commercial. The 10 p.m. show costs $3. —Chris Parker


Hillsborough
Send a Kid to Camp Benefit
Down Yonder Farm—Hanging out in the semi-wilds of Hillsborough on a late-winter/ early-spring night for an excellent cause (sending area kids to a variety of summer camps) sounds like a fine activity. Factor in music, and it sounds even finer. That the four acts showcase a variety of styles is just gravy. The swing of the Rhonda Robichaux Band is for the dancers, while Wil Mills is for the country crowd. Performance artist Tiffany Okafor offers a twist, and blues-rocking ex-Outlaw Harvey Dalton Arnold is the benefit's mainstay. The performances start at 8 p.m. Call 732-7254 for directions and additional details. —Rick Cornell


Raleigh
N.C. Fashion Week
Sheraton Imperial Hotel—Wasting away watching reruns of America's Next Top Model and lusting after the glitzy runways of New York Fashion Week is no way for a Carolina fashionista to live. Get on board for your local fashion fix at the premiere show of North Carolina Fashion Week, boasting an impressive 80-foot runway graced by the designs of up-and-coming designers Devikar and Zulema (of Project Runway fame). But if haute couture's not your thing, then check out the bridal and evening wear designs or the jewelry and cosmetics displays. Models and designers unite to jazz up the local color at noon in the Imperial Ballroom. For more info visit www.ncfashionweek.net. —Kathy Justice
