Kenosha Kid
The Cave—Between Kenny G and the jazz that plays behind your weather-on-the-ones, it's understandable that most people ignore lots of new jazz. Athens, Ga. trio Kenosha Kid is hoping to bring some interest back: Creating a spacious, warm vibe that presses against the ear, Kenosha Kid unsheaths delicate but complicated rhythms under busy low end that fights for air with reverb-soaked guitar lines. And even when the tension comes to a head and the going gets gritty, there are still nods to jazz of old, even as the eye gleams to the future. Jonathan Byrd joins the 10 p.m. bill. —Ian Miller

Jacob Lawrence Exhibition
Golden Belt—Jacob Lawrence's 1941 "Migration Series," originally painted while the artist was still in his 20s, catapulted him to national attention as one of the most important African-American painters of the 20th century. However, for years the series was unavailable in its entirety, with half the paintings belonging to the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the other half at the Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C. Triangle residents can now experience the legendary 60-piece series in one place, thanks to the Harlem-based nonprofit Triple Candie's exhibition entitled Undoing the Bastardization of 'The Migration of the Negro' by Jacob Lawrence. For the first time in decades, audiences will view Lawrence's work depicting the journey of African-Americans from the rural South to the urban North as the artist intended. As The New York Times says, the series "is most effective when seen complete ... only then do you get a sense of its wedding of intimacy and grandeur, and of its graphic virtuosity, played out in changes of perspective and interaction of symbolic forms."
