Weekly highlights for arts and entertainment in the Triangle

10 WEDNESDAY
As Ludacris says, "stand up..." for comedy, as some humorous and potentially subversive elements invade the book-filled interior of Nightlight. Drop Out Productions helms the establishment's inaugural showing of the town's best stand-up jokesters, its funniest one-liners and its most hilarious quips in a comedic free-for-all and possible show (or hoe) down. Also includes funk music by Eric Hirsch. 9 p.m., 405 1/2 W. Rosemary St., Chapel Hill. 933-5550, dyss.net/nightlight. $5.

11 THURSDAY
What do you do when the doctor orders Trance Therapy? You dance and dance and dance and dance to the sounds of DJs Rhino, Jinx and Demencia, some of the best purveyors of dance music in North Carolina. 9 p.m.-3 a.m., Berkeley Cafe, 217 W. Martin St., Raleigh. 821-0777. $3.

12 FRIDAY
Join the AltReader Bookclub and treasured local African-American playwright and poet Howard Craft for this month's discussion. Craft has selected Phillip Shabazz's book of poems Freestyle and Visitation. 7 p.m., The Regulator Bookshop, 720 Ninth St., Durham. 286-2700.

13 SATURDAY
Whoop it up for SWOOP (Strong Women Organizing Outrageous Projects)! Feminist comedians Lisa Koch and Vicki Shaw perform tonight to benefit the nonprofit organization that supplies short term labor to meet otherwise insurmountable community needs in a spirit of cooperative sisterhood. 8 p.m., Reynolds Theater, Bryan Center, Duke University West Campus. 684-4444, www.swoop4u.org. $12-25. Post-performance dessert reception, $15.

14 SUNDAY
Take your boots a-walkin' to precolonial times on the Trading Path Association Hike. The site is the Trading Ford on the Yadkin, a millennia-old river crossing in Rowan County, whose existence is threatened today by yet another proposed river bypass, a DOT bridge. 2:30 p.m. www.tradingpath.org for directions.

15 MONDAY
Meet Jewish immigrant Emma Goldman, once considered the most dangerous woman in America. In The Life of Emma Goldman and Her Influence on our Social Structure, Sally Ann Drucker, coordinator of the Jewish Studies program at Nassau Community College, will tell us what made this early advocate of free speech, birth control, and women's equality and independence so notorious. 7:30 p.m., National Humanities Center, 7 Alexander Dr., Research Triangle Park. 688-5495 for ticket information.

16 TUESDAY
Go amphibious at Lake Crabtree County Park as you learn about your favorite slippery slitherers and sliders, namely frogs and salamanders. It's the perfect season to study these day-and-night crawlers, since they're just waking up from their froggy slumbers and beginning to croon their nighttime melodies. Come ready to learn a frog hoot or stumble across a newt or two. 1-2:30 p.m. Meet at White Oak Shelter. 1400 Aviation Pkwy, Raleigh. 460-2723. $7.
