--Extravore guitarist Matt Stevens at the Pinhook Thursday night with Al Strong opening at 8. Incredible world-class jazz produced by Art of Cool at ridiculously cheap prices.
--the Kobie Watkins Grouptet at Sharp Nine Saturday night at 8. You'll have to ask Kobie what a "grouptet" is, or we'll just wait until then. It features an as yet unidentified guest artist. More mystery...
--If I wasn't solving the above mystery Saturday I'd go hear Elijah Fox-Peck, the elder of the two pianist Fox-Pecks, he a graduate of Durham School of the Arts, his brother about to graduate I believe. I've heard Elijah once & he's worth hearing again. If he's in the area for the summer, perhaps more gigs follow.
Of course, check venue listings. E.g., you can squeeze in half of Aaron Hill's first set at Beyu Thursday before wandering over on Main Street to the Pinhook.
