Fiona Apple

Fiona Apple



KOKA BOOTH AMPHITHEATRE--Fiona Apple is more than the snotty soapboxer whining her way through acceptance speeches, more than the tarty temptress prancing around sleazy videos in her skivvies, and much more than the angsty femme-gem she passed for in 1990s. Of course, you're excused if you disagree: She did wait eons to put out a post-2K record, she did lose control on stage at the VMAs, and she did cash in those Lolita chips when she writhed around with underwear models in the saucy music video for "Criminal." But, on her latest record, Extraordinary Machine, Apple shows a bit of—gasp—maturity. In the '90s, she sang the songs of a teenager: pretty but testy ballads about being young and frustrated and attractive and conflicted and depressed and out-of-control. Today, Apple sings about growing up, finding her footing in the world, finding love, and finally getting graceful. Ms. Apple's full-grown songs will be on display for $39.50-$59.50 at 7 p.m. --Robbie Mackey

Chapel Hill


LOCAL 506--Who was originally set to record Stevie Wonder's "Superstition?" If you can answer that one, you're ready for Music Trivia Night at Local 506. The first question drops at 8 p.m. --Rick Cornell



PITTSBORO SQUARE--A street fair fit for the likes of Mayberry, First Sunday features all local artisans and craftsmen selling their wares in an open-air market along the city's sidewalks, with musical entertainment in the square. Indulge your small-town nostalgia from noon until 5 p.m. Entry is free. --Kathy Justice
