DOC WATSON
N.C. MUSEUM OF ART—A national treasure and a North Carolina disciple, 84-year-old Doc Watson has been a fixture in bluegrass for four decades, leading people into the fold with wit, candor and a magnetic veracity in his performance style. Accolades? That's Doc taking lead guitar on the first two cuts of Side 2 on Will the Circle Be Unbroken, and that's Doc picking his way back home on the Vanguard cut "Southbound," singing in that wrap-you-in-lament baritone he still musters. And that's Doc's festival (named for his late son and collaborator) that brings 85,000 loyalists to Wilkesboro every year, too. Those are his eight Grammys. That's his National Medal of the Arts, too. This is his night. Tickets are $7.50-$25 for an 8 p.m. start with Riley Baugus and Kirk Sutphin. See www.ncartmuseum.org. —Grayson Currin

GIRLS ROCK NC SHOWCASE
CAT'S CRADLE—"I challenge grown-ups to do that," says Girls Rock NC coordinator Amelia V.B. Shull. She's speaking of the most visible goals of the week-long girls' music camp: Form a band, write a song, present it to the public. This performance represents the coming-out party for the songs written by the four bands formed during the camp's 12- to 15-year-old week. The event is free, but donations are welcome. Raffle tickets will be sold at the door for two Daisy Rock guitars. Campers start at 7 p.m., followed by eight other bands covering songs written by women. —Rick Cornell
