JAWSFEST

The annual JAWSFest moves a few blocks east for this year's nautical adventure. The celebration needed, well, a bigger boat than its traditional home at Carrboro's The Station, so it moved to "Chapelboro"—that is, Midway businesses including Al's Burger Shack, Beer Study, and Local 506. The Baxter is JAWSFests's hub and will screen the event's shark-infested namesake at nine p.m. Meanwhile, music at the 506 skews toward enjoyably goofy local standbys, particularly the stampeding sword-and-sorcery metal of Colossus. Durham good-times indie trio Hammer No More the Fingers (who issued an album appropriately titled Black Shark in 2011) share the marquee. They make appropriate headliners; given the bands' area longevity, some of the regulars in the room should even know the words to some of their songs—and to JAWS itself. Blood Red River, Dogs Eyes, Lay Away, Almost People, Natural Causes, and Youth League round out this fine free show. —Corbie Hill
