Handle With Care @ Cat's Cradle 300 E Main St (map)
Fri., Nov. 16, 8:30 p.m.
In honor of George Harrison's humanitarian spirit (see The Concert for Bangladesh), several local acts survey the unsung Beatles' rich catalog (and notable covers) from "Savoy Truffle" to "Got My Mind Set On You." Among those lending their talents are punchy '90s jangle popsters Jeff Hart & the Ruins, sweetly crooning alt-popsters Tripp, supple autumnal orch-folkies Morning Brigade and baroque art-pop duo Prypyat. Tripp frontman Alex Wilkins organized the show to benefit SECU Family House, which provides affordable lodging to seriously ill patients receiving treatment at UNC Hospitals. —Chris Parker
