I’m peeking into the Triad arts scene this week while Jordan Green is out of town — hope I don’t miss anything.

On Thursday, the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art presents an installment of Perform@SECCA in conjunction wit Forecast Music: The Triad Composers Project #2 — Man and Machine, “a juxtaposition of interactive music for live musician and electronics alongside virtuoso acoustic works by some of the world’s finest composers performed by some of the world’s finest performers, all living right in our backyard!” according to the press release.

The show beguns at 8 p.m., and tickets are available at

On Friday night, Greensboro’s Creative Center holds its regular open-mic night — held on the third Friday of each month — with Mike Garrigan. Artist sign-up commences at 7 p.m., and the show starts at 7:30.

My friends at Elsewhere in Greensboro always have stuff going on, but this one looks pretty cool: Friday night the living museum hosts a Traveling Hootenanny at 7 p.m. The website at offers no further details.

But there is an Elsewhere Adventure Tour through the museum every Saturday at 4 and 4:30 p.m. for a meager $5. I think you should go.

On Saturday, the High Point Historical Society hosts Stories and Legends, an evening of ghost stories around the campfire — with s’mores! — featuring author Cynthia Moore Brown.

Festivities begin at 6 p.m. at the High Point Museum.

Also on Saturday, an open casting call begins for a local, independent feature film called 4Gosh, a drama about teen homelessness. “Casting is open to talent of all ages and backgrounds as there are a variety of speaking parts,” according to a press release. E-mail casting@4gosh. conm for more information.

And the C37WORDS School of Poetry holds a registration at the Caldcleugh Multicultural Arts Center at 1700 Orchard St. in Winston-Salem. According to a press release, “The goal of C37WORDS School of Poetry is to give children an alternative way of learning – while keeping it fun yet enriching. We aim to inspired kids to create…….ideas from dreams……… wealth from our God given talents…….. and a sense of purpose for life!” The extended ellipsis are theirs, not mine.

On Sunday, the Greensboro Farmers Curb Market holds its Fall Pottery Festival beginning at 11 a.m.
