TORO Y MOI: A South Carolina native, Toro Y Moi (real name Chaz Bundick) has been toying with various musical projects since early adolescence. See him live Friday with Wild Belle and Dog Bite at Cat's Cradle in Carrboro. His new album "Anything In Return" is out now. Where: Cat's Cradle, Carrboro. When: Friday, 8:30 p.m. $13 Advance; $15 day of show. | More info

RINGLING BROS. AND BARNUM & BAILEY CIRCUS: I mean, word is, it’s the greatest show on earth. Do we really need to sell this? Besides, if you ever dreamed of running off with the circus, now’s your chance. Oh, and it’s the year of the dragon ... a never-before-seen blend of freaky. Get you some. Where: PNC Arena, Raleigh. When: Wednesday-Sunday, times and prices vary. | More info

6TH ANNUAL RALEIGH BLUES FEST: We’d guess the near-Valentine’s Day timing of the annual Raleigh Blues Fest is more than a little coincidental. Maybe some dulcet Deep-South Delta ditties can aid in a cure for those of you with the blues (or at least give you space to commiserate). And if you’re in love, just enjoy the sweet music—but try not to gloat. With Mel Waiters, TK Soul, Roy C, Theodis Ealey, Clarence Carter, Shirley Brown and Maurice Wynn. Where: Memorial Auditorium, Raleigh. When: Saturday, 7 p.m. Starting at $42.50-$49.50. | More info

TIMES SECOND ANNUAL BEER BRUNCH: Beer. It’s what’s for ... breakfast. Yup. Suck down some suds for the Raleigh Times second annual beer-brunch-bonanza. An early-day take on the famed beer dinner, the hoppy hot spot is offering five courses of brunch items, all paired with best-of craft beers (Stone Vertical Epic 11.11.11, Terrapin Liquid Bliss, Cascade Kriek, Mother Earth Silent Night, Mother Earth Wit (possible on cask). Bloody Marys have also been known to make an appearance.) Where: Raleigh Times, Raleigh. When: Sunday, 1 p.m. Price: TBD. Expect between $50 - $70/seat. Hit the Facebook page for more info and updates. Email travis@raleightimesbar.com for reservations.

DISHCRAWL: It’s like a pubcrawl ... but with food. So you and fellow foodies can get a prime seat for your those pundit palates on a gastronomic adventure—to sample specialty dishes, and meet the chefs and owners at select top restos for the culinary-crawl launch. Sup spots are on the DL, but follow on Twitter @DishcrawlRDU for hints. It’s like hide-and-go-seek for your belly. Yum. Where: All ticket holders will be notified of meeting location via email prior to the event. When: Wednesday, 7 p.m. $45. For tickets: dishcrawl.com/downtownraleigh.
