What's on this weekend

Here's what I'd go check out this weekend:

Samite at the Carrboro Arts Center. 9/10 8:00 p.m.
Ugandan musician with a lovely smooth voice and some great kalimba playing.
MP3: Tokido
MP3: I Talk to Children
MP3: Mirembe
(From Kambu Angels, Wind Over the Earth 2003. Buy)
His latest, Tunula Eno, sounds like it has more percussion, which I like. This seems to be a solo show, though, so that probably won't be a factor here. (Tunula Eno: buy or download)

Solomon Burke
(et al.) at the Bull Durham Blues Festival, Durham Athletic Park. 9/9-11. (Burke is 9/10 10:30 p.m.) Full schedule
Won a Grammy for best contemporary blues album in 2003.
MP3: Diamond in Your Mind
MP3: Flesh and Blood
MP3: None of us are Free
(From Don't Give Up On Me, Fat Possum 2002. Buy or download)

The Mendoza Line at Local 506. 9/11 10:00 p.m.
Rock/pop with some twang.
Lots of MP3s here. I like "It's a Long Line".
