CAROLINA MUSIC FESTIVAL
KOKA BOOTH AMPHITHEATRE—If lazy Sundays are meant for relaxation, smooth jazz may be the perfect soundtrack. That's one residing theme for the final day of the Carolina Music Festival, where the line-up includes such jazz all-stars as Joe Sample, Randy Crawford, Boney James and Michael Franks delivering their smooth grooves. But the festival doesn't hinge solely around jazz: Saturday's roster includes soul singers Erykah Badu and Tyrese headlining, and Friday sports the smooth rock of Michael McDonald and the eclectic funk of War. Sunday's show starts at 2 p.m. and costs $40-$62.50. —Kathy Justice

Chapel Hill
SPEED-THE-PLOW
MARKET STREET BOOKS—American playwright, filmmaker, director and author David Mamet's Speed-the-Plow is a 90-minute exploration of gender politics and power. Mamet, who is notorious for writing short, clipped dialogue, wrote Speed-the-Plow to expose the dirty underside of show business. FATE (Free Association Theatre Ensemble) will present the play at Market Street Books through Sept. 8. For more info, visit www.marketstreetbooks.com or call 933-5111.—Megan Stein
