The Get Up Kids

Cat's Cradle—Since splitting in 2005, the five Midwestern boys who grew up together as The Get Up Kids have been biding their time with other projects, notably Spoon, The New Amsterdams and Reggie & the Full Effect. Their influence, however, hasn't faded, inspiring a new wave of emo bands that sully The Get Up Kids' reputation. Get your hypercharged indie rock straight from the source with tonight's set, which will be heavy on Something to Write Home About—a seminal platter of Midwestern emo—a decade after its release, though the Kids will pull from all points between the brash pop-punk charge of its debut EP and the bouncy power pop chug of its full-length swan song. Disciples Kevin Devine and Mansions open. Tickets run $18-$22 for the 8 p.m. show. See www.catscradle.com. —Spencer Griffith

Raleigh
Roy Williams

Quail Ridge Books & Music—A friend of mine joined a 388-member-strong Facebook group called "I LOVE it when Roy Williams takes his jacket off." A sidebar explains the subtle tells for gauging when Williams is upset at his players or at the refs. Roy had few reasons to take it off last season, when his team won the 2009 NCAA championship over Michigan State. Early reports for this season are optimistic, despite losing Ty Lawson, Danny Green and Tyler Hansborough to the pros. In Williams' down time, he's managed to crank out Hard Work: My Life On and Off the Court, co-authored with Tim Crothers, which details the years before he merited one-name status in college basketball. In the book is a photo of Roy removing one of his famous jackets, with the caption: "I don't remember ever losing a game when I shed it." Tonight, he'll stop by at 7:30 to sign copies (but no memorabilia). Here's another reason to go: There'll be a drawing for a pair of UNC basketball tickets. But you have to show up to win.
