Benjamin Bennett
The Shed, Durham
The Shed's website says "Groundbreaking percussionist, performance artist and photographer Benjamin Bennett's durational art series 'Sitting and Smiling', in which Bennett films himself sitting and smiling for 4 hours, has been featured in the Atlantic Monthly and Vice. Bennett's auditory work is complex and challenging, reminiscent of Tatsuya Nakatani and Austin Vaughn."

Boris, Earth
Cat's Cradle, Carrboro
If you're into any sort of heavy music, you're already here. If you're just curious, this would be a pretty remarkable intro to what's out there beyond the horizons of what you probably think of as "metal."
