Weekender: Oct. 9-10

•‘Neighbors’ on TARC

Saturday, Oct. 9

930 Art Center

930 Mary St.

Free; 4:30-6 p.m.

The TARC bus knows no boundaries. Every day, it navigates the city — street to street, neighborhood to neighborhood, zip code to zip code. That’s why it makes a natural subject for the public art project “Neighbors: Saint Catherine Street” by photographer Rachel Seed, curator Erin Fletcher and designer Keli Allen. Starting this week, nearly 20 TARC buses will feature Seed’s color photos of the people, places and things she shot while spending a day on Saint Catherine Street. The photos will be on display on the buses’ interior panels. A discussion of the project will be held on Saturday at the 930 Center, which is also exhibiting the images. The project “uses often-overlooked Saint Catherine Street as a lens to examine a community-wide need for a place to call home,” says Fletcher. —Sara Havens

•Les Debutantes

Sunday, Oct. 10


2100 S. Preston St. • 635-ZBAR


Free; 8 p.m.

We know you were left demoralized by W. Axl Rose’s 14-years-in-the-making folly — the numbing, Botox-riddled Chinese Democracy. The new album from French-pop auteurs Les Debutantes is considerably less absurd, brilliant, no producers were fired over the phone, and it was completed in a fraction of the time (six years, give or take a few months). Centennial is a 100-song, four-disc collection of original music grown in large part at the home of Debs guitarist and former My Morning Jacket keyboard player Danny Cash. At long last, the Debs’ revolving cast lifts the curtain on their staggering century of songs, appropriately enough on 10/10/10. So expansive, the release practically begs for a new top 100 singles chart, because all 100 would be theirs. —Mat Herron
