No One Piece
Bull City HeadquartersArt is a celebration of life and friendship at this benefit for the Safe Passage Foundation, a community of volunteers working to educate and nurture at-risk children working in the Guatemala City garbage dump. This evening’s exhibit features works constructed from wood-stain, floss and photos designed by Midtown Dickens’ Catherine Edgerton (who is also an Indy employee); music by Phil Cook, Django Haskins, Resist Not and Sweater Weather; and a brief presentation about Safe Passage by Cassie Hoffman. Doors open at 7 p.m.; donations encouraged. While you’re hanging around downtown Durham tonight, go check out other Third Friday events at The Scrap Exchange, Through This Lens, Stables and Branch Gallery. Kathy Justice

Hideaway BBQJudging by Durham’s aquatic disaster, I’d never guess soothsaying would be a plank of Mayor Bill Bell’s platform. How, then, did he know to proclaim Sept. 7, 2007, Bombadil Day in Durham, when the band could only claim a decent LP and a few mid-sized tours? Prophecy! Previews of Bombadil’s due-in-April LP, A Buzz, A Buzz, is the sound of a band getting smarter and braver, coming into its playfulness with risky arrangements that pay off. Bombadil Year? We’ll see. With Holy Ghost Tent Revival at 9:30 p.m. for $6. Grayson Currin
