Durham
The Moody Blues
Durham Peforming Arts Center—Though The Moody Blues pale next to the British Invasion's best (Kinks, Stones, Beatles, The Who), they're only a notch below and still undoubtedly the era's finest group to be overlooked by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. After a lineup shuffle prior to their second album, Days of Future Passed, pointed them in a new, epic psych-rock direction, they rendered a string of seven terrific, well-charting albums. Their heady symphonic sound—keyed prominently by flute and mellotron—was never as indulgent as prog successors like Emerson, Lake and Palmer—and retained a sturdy rock undercarriage. They've remained creative and kept their core intact for four decades, while preserving their performance vitality. The show begins at 8 p.m., and tickets cost $38.50–$69.50. See www.dpacnc.com. —Chris Parker


Durham
Bridging Rails to Trails

Durham Arts Council—The American Tobacco Trail functions as a natural institution, encompassing more than 22 miles over Chatham, Durham and Wake counties. With all that mileage it's bound to spawn some good stories. Carol Thomson's documentary, including archival video and interviews, traces the trail's 100-year history, focusing on how one little seed grew into a multibillion-dollar global industry and changed public perception of the entire state. The screening begins at 7 p.m., with reception to follow, and is free to the public. For more information, visit wwwbridgingrailstotrails.com or email cthomson@firestreammedia.com. —Sarah Ewald
