Any event benefiting the Be Loud! Sophie Foundation, which supports teen and young adult cancer patients, has a lot of inherent worth. But this year’s model is impressive beyond the cause, with a 13-act lineup featuring 1980s hitmakers English Beat, Greg Humphreys’ sunny funk-pop-soul band Hobex, dB’s co-founder Chris Stamey’s jazz-torch project Occasional Shivers, local supergroup Preeesh! and lots more.

It’s Friday and Saturday at Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro and tickets are $25 per night, or $45 for a two-night pass. See catscradle.com for details.
