Chapel Hill
Maxine Swalin
Memorial Hall, UNC Campus—Maxine Swalin, along with her late husband Ben Swalin, a former UNC-CH music teacher, helped establish the N.C. Symphony as a permanent institution. The couple spent almost 40 years solidifying the symphony's name. In honor of Swalin's 105th birthday, Carolina Performing Arts presents a free, unticketed performance at 2 p.m. today that features a performance by cellist Nancy Green and pianist Frederick Moyer. For more info, visit www.carolinaperformingarts.org or call 843-3333. —Megan Stein



Raleigh
The Sugar
Sadlack's—One-man keyboard band The Sugar recently relocated from Portland to Raleigh, and his shit-talking, whiskey-and-women-loving organ blizzards have already won the hearts and bottles of Slim's. Honestly, who could resist a guy who manages these two lyrics in the same set: "Well, they call me The Sugar/ Because I'm so fuckin' sweet/ Like a sticky pastry/ Or some tasty treat" and "Don't tell me not to cuss/ Don't tell me not to smoke/ If all you can do is worry about me/ your life must be a joke." The Sugar gets salty at 5 p.m. —Grayson Currin


Bynum
ClydeFest
Bynum Ball Park—If you haven't experienced the unique chainsaw-sculpted cedar artwork of Clyde Jones, the Seventh Annual ClydeFest in Chatham is the place to start. Including live performances by Tommy Edwards and Friends, the Milagro Saints and Breadfood, along with a magic show from Shaun Pugliese, the event also features the live creation of a new "Clyde Critter" to be auctioned off for charity. ClydeFest is from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Bynum Ball Park located off of U.S. 15-501 in Bynum, between Chapel Hill and Pittsboro. Admission is $5 for adults, $4 for ChathamArts members, $2 for children ages 2-12 and free for infants under 2. For information, call 542-0394 or visit www.chathamarts.org. —Zack Smith


Winston-Salem
Phantom of the Opera at RiverRun
North Carolina School of the Arts—If you're looking for a reason to brave I-85 and drive to Winston-Salem, there's no better occasion than the Alloy Orchestra accompanying the 1925 silent Phantom of the Opera at the RiverRun International Film Festival. Lon Chaney is among the most bizarre personalities ever nurtured by the movies. His monsters are anguished souls trapped in deformed bodies, the chills intensified by the imagination the silent film viewer brings to the image on the screen. The Alloy Orchestra, consisting of three mad musicians (one is formerly of the art-punk band Mission of Burma), creates new scores and new ways of making music for every film it accompanies. No less than Roger Ebert says they are the best in the world. The film starts at 7 p.m. but get your tickets in advance: Call (336) 721-1945 or visit www.riverrunfilm.com. —Laura Boyes
