AV Geeks

BICKETT GALLERY--Tired of swatting mosquitoes and flies and watching roaches seek solace from the summer sun inside your apartment? Need to commiserate with fellow anti-entomology enthusiasts? Skip Elsheimer's AV Geeks comes through like a champ once again, sorting through his 18,000 educational films to find the gems that pit man against arthropod. Titles include Doomsday for Pests and Use of Aircraft for Insect Control. See the set tonight at Bickett Gallery at 9 p.m. or on Friday at 8 p.m. at Duke's Center for Documentary Studies. Either way, bring $5, not OFF!

Countdown Quartet

THE BERKELEY CAFE--Josh Preslar is fresh off the road with bluesboy Slick Ballinger, who moved to Mississippi as a teenager to soak up the Delta flavor of the music he loved. Preslar brings his blues band back to the club that he's helped establish as a local jamming outpost thanks to his long-running Wednesday open mics. The always partying Countdown Quartet sits atop this bill, with young Patrick Sweany--an Ohio guitar slinger with the light touch of Chuck Berry and the casual roadhouse voice of a lost Sun Records pal--pulling in for a break. Sweany plays Schoolkids Records in Raleigh at 5 p.m. and Berkeley at 9 p.m. --Grayson Currin
