Chapel Hill
Rosewood Thieves, Max Indian, Embarrassing Fruits
Local 506—This fine, free triple-bill gathers four decades of rock 'n' roll revivalists, none of whom break ground but all of whom represent big-name referents with reverence and competence: New York's Rosewood Thieves sings slightly hazy pop songs graced by alternating shots of languid country moan and anxious cosmopolitan jangle. The band's latest, and first since taking leave from Richard Branson's V2 Records, Rise & Shine, boasts a dozen '70s charms, from The Band-ish bounce of "Silver Gun" to the Grateful Dead psyche-simmer of "Moon Song." Chapel Hill's Max Indian takes one step back and two steps forward, grabbing hold of The Beatles' hook concision and applying it with a nervy New Wave oomph. And that's about where Embarrassing Fruits picks up, distilling some of the best indie rock lessons of the late '80s and early '90s—Dinosaur's bleary jangle and Pavement's askew constructions—into a charming, ramshackle presentation. The free show begins at 9:30 p.m., and 10 percent of bar proceeds go to local food kitchens and homeless shelters. —Grayson Currin


Chapel Hill
Kirov Orchestra
Memorial, UNC Campus—Unlike communism, the Kirov Orchestra of the Mariinsky Theatre functions beautifully in reality. Based out of St. Petersburg, the orchestra was established under Peter the Great in the 18th century. The group now tours as a vanguard, constantly spreading the sound of Russia: Lumbering strings, hesitant double reeds, and glorious brass reveal burlaks hauling barges up the Volga, proletarians swinging hammers in factories, and communists welcoming glasnost, throwing off the shackles of censorship.

For this visit, the orchestra will concentrate on music with emotive dissonance, strong motifs and romance. Tuesday will begin with Tchaikovsky's take on as much and Wednesday will close with Prokofiev's understanding of Shakespeare's tale of Romeo and Juliet. Tuesday's program will also include selections from Prokofiev, and Wednesday will feature several different Prokofiev pieces and a little Beethoven. Of course, Beethoven isn't Russian, but the shared development of motifs, grand gestures, and storytelling within the music should be appreciated nonetheless. Led by Valery Gergiev, artistic and general director of the Mariinsky Theatre and principal conductor of the Kirov Orchestra. Tickets are $35-$100 for the 7:30 p.m. —Andrew Ritchey
