CAT'S CRADLE—As part of Throwing Muses, Kristin Hersh was the first American artist to be signed to 4AD in 1986. That, of course, made her a prime candidate for Yep Roc, whose lineup includes other aged indies and punks Nick Lowe, Paul Weller and John Doe. But her excellent Yep Roc debut, Learn to Sing Like a Star, moves with a textural freshness that proclaims she's still reinventing her light-meets-dark approach and not resting on 20 years of laurels. Tonight, she's got a band and strings. The McCarricks and Dolorean open. Tickets are $12 for the 8:30 p.m. show.—Grayson Currin

PROGRESS ENERGY CENTER—The Pacifica Quartet, praised for its "virtuosity, exuberant performance style, and daring repertory choices," continues its extensive tour of the United States and Europe tonight at Fletcher Opera Theater. Pianist Wu Han, described as "a classical music breakthrough," will accompany the quartet while they play Smetana's Quartet No. 1, Janacek's Quartet No. 2 and Schumann's Piano Quintet. For more info, visit or call 821-2030. —Megan Stein
