MEYMANDI HALL—Oh, pity! The Decemberists show in Raleigh is sold out! What to do?! Perhaps I'll stay at home and watch THE complete set of Wes Anderson Criterion Collection films, or go down to the coffee shop and read some (original language) Spanish literature from the 18th century. Instead, maybe it's the right time to revisit If You're Feeling Sinister and In the Aeroplane Over the Sea. Scalp if you want to (write a song cycle for the scalpers, Mr. Meloy!): Show starts at 8 p.m. with My Brightest Diamond. —Grayson Currin
