Richard Goode & The N.C. Symphony

Meymandi Hall--Ask most people to name five composers, and Claude Debussy won't make it into their list. But the importance of Debussy, a French composer born in 1862, continues to grow as the centennial of his death approaches: Strains of American minimalism owe sizable debts to his way of painting very austere, complex pictures with careful, deceptively complex sound, and the current brand of post-rock getting the indie rock dudes into a tizzy lifted large portions of its distended resolutions straight from the Debussy songbook of nebulous maneuver. Pianist Richard Goode isn't known foremost for his work interpreting Debussy, but the critically lauded New York pianist joins the N.C. Symphony for two 8 p.m. renditions of Debussy's prelude to "L'Après-midi d'un faune" on Friday and Saturday. Highly recommended, kiddies, despite the $28-44 price. --Grayson Currin

Project Mastana

Ringside--Project Mastana, a self-described "Indo-World Music band," celebrates the premiere of its new music video tonight at Ringside. Their album Bon Voyage is out now, just before the band heads to Paris for a tour in June. That should be a party.
