Blending old-time Appalachian string music with hip-hop sounds crazy - but in the hands of Justin Robinson
, late of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, it might just be crazy enough to work. Robinson and his new band, the Mary Annettes
, will play in support of their new CD "Bones for Tinder" at Local 506 on Friday.
Meanwhile, Robinson's former band, the superb Carolina Chocolate Drops
, share the stage with the New York gypsy punk outfit Luminescent Orchestrii at Memorial Hall Friday night. Should be a show to remember. 919-843-3333, carolinaperformingarts.org
The Preservation Society of Chapel Hill will open "Recollections: Trees, Sea and Me,"
an exhibition of works by Francis Katz, with a reception from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Horace Williams House, 610 E. Rosemary St. The show will remain up through Feb. 25. 919-942-7818, chapelhillpreservation.com
