Animal Planet Expo
  • Animal Planet Expo

SAS SOCCER PARK—The Animal Planet Expo, presented by Animal Planet and Time Warner Cable, is truly for the whole family, especially the furry ones. Visitors can enjoy Frisbee dog shows, trivia contests, exotic animals, bugs and butterflies, face painting, safari snaps and HD television presentations. The 10 a.m. event is free, in the SAS Soccer Park, 201 Soccer Park Drive. For info, call 858-0464. —Iesha Brown

THE POUR HOUSE—This Charlottesville, Va., six-piece play bluegrass like the rebel music it once was, from the furiously paced "Lonesome Train" and "Cannonball" to pretty ballads like "Sun's Work Undone" and "Herschel's Song." Inspired and skilled musicians, their shows are infused with energy and a generous spirit. They're touring in advance of the release of their third studio album in as many years, Look Out, which also features a couple tracks written by shadow Hackensaw Boy Tom Peloso, who moonlights in Modest Mouse. The show is $6 in advance and $8 at the door. Lick it up at 10 p.m. —Chris Parker

Chapel Hill
SKYLIGHT EXCHANGE—With Indy Office Manager Michael Gagnon, this modern classic gets a proper staging in the bowels of the Chappy underground. Runs May 31-June 4. Tickets are $7. —David Fellerath
