Pittsboro
Joni Tevis
McIntyre's Fine Books—A writer with a knack for distilling elements of the everyday into a delicate blend of thoughts and musings, South Carolina's Joni Tevis is a wordsmith of the first order. She reads from The Wet Collection, which contains essays inspired by her summer jobs as a park ranger, at 11 a.m. —Kathy Justice

Carrboro
Freakshow
Hillsborough Road Co-Op—From the Hillsborough Road folks who provided skill-sharing sessions like mud wrestling, beer brewing and caring for a chicken (slaughter chicken, cook chicken, eat dinner) comes Freakshow, a circus of food, unicycles, juggling and slightly freaky music. Expect punkish anti-folk by dan mac and the bullet, rock bouts from The Bronzed Chorus and jazz-influenced folk from harmute. Also: Marijuana Wolf, Remora, Irata and a Blondie cover act. The event runs 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. A donation of $5-$10 is requested. —Margaret Hair

Chapel Hill
2.5 Minute Ride
UNC Center for Dramatic Art—Written and performed by Lisa Kron, the OBIE award-winning solo show narrates her trip with her father to the resting place of his parents—Auschwitz—that concludes with their yearly trip to an amusement park. For more info, visit www.playmakersrep.org or call 962-7529. See page 29 for our interview with Kron. —Megan Stein
