Colin Hay
Carolina Theatre, Durham
Best known to people of my generation as the frontman for Men at Work, although at this point he's recorded something like 3 times as many solo albums as there were Men at Work albums.

Austin Piazzolla Quintet
The Shed, Durham
Per the Shed: "The Austin Piazzolla Quintet specializes in the music of the late Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla as well as original nuevo tango compositions. Founded by James Anderson (violin), the APQ has been performing to captivated audiences since 2009. With Jonathan Geer (piano), Mike Maddux (accordion, bandoneon), Tony Rogers (cello), and Pat Harris (bass), all from diverse musical backgrounds, the band continues the tradition of nuevo tango through intense live shows which feature unique arrangements of Piazzolla’s compositions, innovative original works, and fiery improvisation."

Remember when WXYC went through that Piazzolla period back in the late 90s or early 2000s, and you couldn't go 30 minutes without hearing a tango on the air?
