Durham
N.C. Youth Tap Ensemble
Carolina Theatre—Celebrating its 25th anniversary, the Chapel Hill-based N.C. Youth Tap Ensemble performs tonight and Sunday in Fletcher Hall. Professional tap dancers Jason Samuels Smith and Michelle Dorrance (who have been in shows such as Bring in 'Da Noise, Bring in 'Da Funk and STOMP, respectively) will round out the evening with their big-time acts. Visit www.ncyte.org for more info or call 560-3030 for tickets. —Megan Stein



Chapel Hill
Long Leaf Opera Vocal Competition
Paul Green Theatre, UNC Campus—Call it American Diva: For its biannual vocalist competition, Long Leaf Opera selected 10 finalists from 60 applicants. Representing eight different states, including North Carolina, the finalists perform three English language selections in front of judges and a live audience, competing to win cash prizes ranging from $250 to $1000. The performances are free. For more info, visit www.longleafopera.org or call 240-8782. —Megan Stein


Chapel Hill
Angela Shelton
UNC School of Social Work—Perhaps known best as co-screenwriter for 1999's Tumbleweeds (which was based off of her childhood memories) actor, comedian and writer Angela Shelton visits UNC today to present and discuss her award-winning film Searching for Angela Shelton. At age 27, Shelton traveled across America, seeking to document the lives of women who share her name. Her documentary chronicles her quest and the surprise that 70 percent of women she encountered were victims of rape, sexual assault and/ or domestic violence. Those interested in the free screening and discussion should register at www.nchealthywoman.org or by calling 843-1759. —Megan Stein


Chapel Hill
Dirty Little Heaters
Jack Sprat—Yeah, that's right: Café and coffee house Jack Sprat on Franklin Street is having another local rocker blowout. The Heaters will surely bring some measure of volume not usually made for sipping cappuccinos. Let's just say it's good the place has a nice bar out front these days. Durhamites Dom Casual and Shipwreckers also appear. Come at 10 p.m. —Chris Toenes

Chapel Hill
Daily Tar Heel's Diversions
Local 506—Two years ago, The Daily Tar Heel launched its Diversions blog (apps.dailytarheel.com/blogs/dive), devoting significant resources to local music via show reviews, live photos, album reviews, interviews and short essays ever since. The blog expanded its reach to culture-at-large this year, but the focus clearly remains on documenting the wealth of talent either visiting or living in the university's front yard. Tonight, the blog celebrates the close of year two with three excellent locals: Hammer No More the Fingers (searing indie rock new-heroes from Durham), The Future Kings of Nowhere (emo-ish acoustic anthems, potent and pummeling, also from Durham) and The Graves of Fairmont (Mac McCaughan and Mark Kozelek, high-fiving in springtime). Dan Bryk is the guest DJ. Free tunes drop at 10 p.m. —Grayson Currin
