U.S. premier of guitar concerto

Brasil Guitar Duo will perform with the USC Symphony Orchestra at 7:30 tonight at the Koger Center. It is the orchestra’s final concert of the season. The duo, Joao Luiz and Douglas Lora, will play the U.S. premiere of “Concerto for Two Guitars,” written by composer Paulo Bellinati, who is expected to be in attendance. The concert’s repertoire will also feature Bedrich Smetana’s “The Moldau” and “Pines of Rome” by Ottorino Respighi. The Koger Center is at 1051 Greene St. $8-$25; (803) 251-2222 or capitoltickets.com


Two-night stand

Before Atlas Road Crew leave on an East coast tour, it will have a two-night stand at 5 Points Pub beginning at 10 tonight. A jam band that refuses to be pigeonholed as a jam band because of its variety of influences, ARC is quickly becoming one of the better draws in the music scene. The Heritage will open the first show and The Broadcast the second on Friday, also at 10 p.m. The pub is at 2020 Devine St. $6; www.the5pointspub.com


Style Exhibition

The finale of the sixth annual Style Exhibition, hosted by WACH-57’s Shyann Malone, is at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at The Medallion Center. But the three-day event actually begins tonight with a networking social at 5 p.m. and pre-show party at 8 p.m. at Tapp’s Art Center, 1644 Main St. The social is free and the party is $10. On Friday, there will be a Trendsetter’s Showcase at 7:30 p.m. at The Medallion Center, 7309 Garners Ferry Road. Both showcases at the center cost $20 for general admission and $40 for front-row seating and V.I.P. treatment. For more, visit www.3jay-styleexhibition.com.
