Don Dixon, Mitch Easter
Cat's Cradle—Even if Don Dixon and Mitch Easter had nothing else to show for their musical selves but their studio teamwork on R.E.M.'s Murmur, that'd still be a not-too-shabby legacy. Of course, they'd already done notable work before then, setting the pop/rock bar incredibly high onstage and on record for all subsequent N.C. bands with Arrogance and Sneakers, respectively. And we'd need this whole two-page spread to chronicle the pair's achievements since. Dixon continues with his Jump Rabbits in support of last year's The Entire Combustible World in One Small Room, while Easter is celebrating—and we haven't been able to say this in 18 years—his new solo release, Dynamico. Tickets are $12 for the 9 p.m. show. —Rick Cornell

Kevin Duffus
McIntyre's—Historian Kevin Duffus will discuss his new book Shipwrecks of The Outer Banks. The topics he will cover include the causes of shipwrecks and why so many occurred on the N.C. coast, as well as stories of shipwrecks and rescues. The event begins at 11 a.m. and is free. For more info, visit or call 542-3030. —Megan Stein
