Farm-2-Table Supper

Sun., Feb. 26, 7 p.m.

Beer and pizza. It’s like peanut butter and jelly, Bey and Jay, McCrory and Pope — hard to think of one without the other. The combo offered up at this farm-to-table event will be different from your average suds n’ slice. Chef Austin Crum will serve a four-course meal of local goodness, each course complemented with a seasonable beer from the Free Range Brewing Co. Crum and Jason Alexander of FRB partnered on a new beer brewed from locally sourced ingredients. $50

Awake At Last, Take the Fall, Old Sport, Paperback

Tue., Feb. 28, 9 p.m.

The members of female-fronted punk quartet Take the Fall sound like they’ve been wired to an early-2000s radio permanently tuned to Blink 82 and Taking Back Sunday. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, as long as the band’s got songs. Luckily, Take the Fall’s tunes are ace — the perfect mix of heart-on-sleeve vulnerability and crunchy kiddie-punk confection. Recent tunes such as snotty kiss-off “Calm Before My Storm” show the band pushing past its emo roots. $5-7

Bookwomen Speak

Mon., Feb. 27, 7-8:30 p.m.

Never judge a book by its cover, and never judge a panel by its title. Sitting around listening to a bunch of folks speak about the Women’s National Book Association’s 100-year birthday may not sound like your cup of tea, but these are some badass women. The panel includes Emoke B’Racz, owner of Malaprop’s Bookstore and Café in Asheville; Ina Stern, recently retired associate publisher at Algonquin Books; and Betsy Teter, executive director at Hub City Press and Hub City Bookshop. Free.

Joe Bonamossa

Sun., Feb. 26, 8 p.m.

Thanks to boundary-stretching veterans like Joe Bonamassa, blues-based guitar rock is having something of a resurgence. It’s been 17 years since his solo debut, but Bonamassa still has the fire and fluidity of a young gun, and he tempers his chops with a willingness to step away from the cliché with chords not usually heard in the blues. For his latest album, Blues of Desperation, he teams with crack Nashville songwriters, making the tunes as important as guitar pyrotechnics. $69

Long Story Short

Wed., March 1, 7-9 p.m.

A night of local film and local art and local music — well, local in the sense that you’ll be singing it. First, enjoy a collection of short films put together by the Carolina Film Community, including The Hidden, winner of Charlotte’s 2016 100 Words Film Festival. There’s also an award-winning short film called Shit being screened, so that can’t be bad. Follow the films up with a game of “Soundtrack Karaoke,” during which it’s safe to say at least three people will sign up to sing “My Heart Will Go On.” Free.
