Art appreciators (and seekers of free wine), rejoice! A handful of galleries pushed back their regular “First Friday” shows to this week because of the Fourth of July holiday. Venues in and around the Warehouse District, including 311 West Martin Street Galleries and Studios, CAM Raleigh, Visual Art Exchange and Flanders will be open in the evening. Or venture to Roundabout Art Collective off Oberlin Road in Cameron Village.
The N.C. Museum of Art will screen the blockbuster film “ Frozen” Friday night in its outdoor amphitheater. For anyone who’s been living under a rock, it’s the story of a princess who struggles to control her magical ability to freeze things and the devoted sister who warms her heart. A reminder to parents: We suggest buying noise-canceling headphones beforehand, as your children will be singing the catchy song “Let It Go” for the rest of the weekend. 9 p.m. Friday, $5, N.C. Museum of Art, 2110 Blue Ridge Road, ncartmuseum.org
Acoustic singer-songwriter Nate Currin’s national tour stops at Sola Coffee Cafe. The Atlanta-based musician has toured with Blues Traveler and appeared on MTV, but his Raleigh show will be an intimate performance. He’ll be playing songs off the concept album “The Pilgrim” that came out last year. The CD is described as a musical interpretation of the 1678 book “The Pilgrim’s Progress” by English writer and preacher John Bunyan. 7:30-9:30 p.m. Saturday, Sola Coffee Cafe, 7705 Lead Mine Road, solacoffee.com
