Raleigh
Grass Widow, Mtn. High, Coyote
Slim's—Philadelphia's Mtn. High is like a Raleigh rock trio that sucks down Pixy Stix and drains shooters of vodka and barbecue sauce (try it!): That is, its three-piece scuzz brings the boogie and riffs you'd expect from Slim's, just applied to songs like "Galien" or "Complaxegon" and lines like "Soda machines and snack attacks/ Frito Lays, salt!" Travel pal and former labelmate Coyote will fit better when it shares the Nightlight stage with Bellafea on Friday (see page 23), as its anthems—spotted with atonality and jagged textures—sound like Pere Ubu busting out of a cabaret with fingers of electricity. Grass Widow's a straight-up Raleigh four-piece that's got some locals buzzing, thanks in no small part to the powerhouse drumming of Evan Williams. Come at 10 p.m. and pay $3. —Grayson Currin



Raleigh
Neil Sedaka with N.C. Symphony
Meymandi Hall—Neil Sedaka is probably best suited for a Vegas casino these days, but his track record is undeniable: millions of records sold, four decades of success as a songwriter and performer, and writing credits on approximately half of the pop songs commonly associated with lonely doo-wop and, more generally, the early 1960s. "Calendar Girl," "Breaking Up Is Hard to Do," "Happy Birthday, Sweet Sixteen" and "Love Will Keep Us Together": Their writer joins the N.C. Symphony for a three-day stay headlining the Pops Series at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 3 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $32-$57. —Margaret Hair

Raleigh
Academy Awards
Theatre in the Park— Would you deny this man an Oscar? Join Javier Bardem (seen in No Country for Old Men, for which he received a Best Supporting Actor nomination) and a Hollywood industry that is grateful for the end of the writers' strike for the 80th annual Academy Awards. If you're looking to celebrate "Oscar Night America" in grand style--or in US Weekly style--join Raleigh's Theatre in the Park for its fundraising gala and walk the red carpet yourself. For information, call 831-6936 or visit www.theatreinthepark.com. —David Fellerath
