Ned Sublette

Regulator Bookshop—For many of the 365 days before the levies broke, before at least 1,500 people died (the actual death toll may never be known), before much of New Orleans was flattened by Hurricane Katrina, author and musician Ned Sublette was in the Crescent City researching its music and culture. His book The Year Before the Flood: A Story of New Orleans—the sequel to The World That Made New Orleans—combines autobiographical, sociological and musical elements to limn a portrait of the city. Sublette will sign and discuss the book tonight, and as a bonus he'll perform some of the songs featured in it. The event starts at 7 p.m.; for more information, visit www.regulatorbookshop.com. —Zack Smith

  • Deleted Scenes

Raleigh
Birds and Arrows, Deleted Scenes

Slim's—Birds and Arrows' Pete and Andrea Connolly leverage sweet harmonies, simple strums and sparse percussion to let listeners eavesdrop on personal moments of marriage. These intimate stories—scenes of the couple's honeymoon are detailed just before Pete offers an ode to his deceased adopted brother—are rife with imagery and imparted with a nostalgic, naturalistic slant. Nashville trio Oblio shares some of those Americana tendencies, though they're shot with a streak of rock 'n' roll oomph and drenched in vintage organ swirls. Deleted Scenes' psychedelic, reverb-laden indie rock is the aberrant one here, and it's worth the $3 cover alone. The show starts at 9 p.m. See www.myspace.com/slimsdowntownraleigh.—Spencer Griffith
