Chapel Hill
Change Comes Knocking
Union Auditorium, UNC Campus—Before the "war on terror" and the "war on drugs," there was the war on poverty. President Lyndon Johnson announced the campaign in his State of the Union address in 1964, but North Carolina had already engaged the enemy the year before, when Governor Terry Sanford created the North Carolina Fund. In a bold attempt to tackle the problems of persistent poverty head-on, interracial teams of college students fanned out across the state, helping set up whatever programs and community groups seemed beneficial at the time.

Change Comes Knocking: The Story of the North Carolina Fund documents this unique five-year social experiment, from its heady inception to a backlash by entrenched local authorities to its alignment with the civil rights movement. By the makers of Durham: A Self-Portrait and February One: The Story of the Greensboro Four, the film forces audiences to consider why, 45 years later, we still haven't won the war on poverty: Have we deemed the problem intractable, or have we lost the will to fight? The free premiere screening at 7 p.m. will be followed by a panel discussion with producer Rebecca Cerese, the fund's original P.R. director Billy Barnes, Durham activist Rubye Gattis and UNC history professor Jim Leloudis. —Marc Maximov

Chapel Hill
Hammer No More, Goes Cube
Hell—Brooklyn's Goes Cube streamlines its Motorhead chug and then fusses with it, blending unexpected textures and transitions into metal that doesn't sit still. It comes to Hell after leaving the Hades of SXSW. Hammer No More the Fingers—who treat that delicious vintage of early '90s Chapel Hill indie rock as a catapult for childhood dreams—headline. Different sounds, same edge. —Grayson Currin
