Today:

• Winston-Salem City Council holds a special meeting to forge its state legislative agenda in the Public Works Conference Room o the third floor of City Hall, located at 101 N. Main St., at 8 a.m.

• Paul Foley, a member of the State Board of Elections, speaks at the conservative lunch at the Golden Corral at Hanes Mall in Winston-Salem at noon.

• The High Point Police Department holds a swearing-in and promotions ceremony in council chambers on the third floor of City Hall, located at 211 S. Hamilton St., at 2 p.m.

Tonight:

• Jamal Fox, who represents District 2 on Greensboro City Council, celebrates his birthday at Pig Pounder Brewery, located at 1107 Grecade St., at 5:30 p.m. The invitation bills the gathering as also a celebration of Fox’s first year on city council, but it might be more relevant that Fox’s reelection is coming up this year. We’ll be watching to see if Marty Kotis, the owner Pig Pounder, turns out to be a significant backer of Fox’s campaign.

• Earline Parmon is vacating her state Senate seat in District 32 to serve as a local constituent liaison for US Rep. Alma Adams. The Forsyth County Party holds a public forum for candidates to replace Parmon in the seat at the Mazie Woodruff Center, located at 4905 Lansing Drive in Winston-Salem, at 6 p.m.

• Renaissance Community Co-op holds its monthly community meeting at Presbyterian Church of the Cross, located at 1810 Phillips Ave. in Greensboro, at 7 p.m.

Bit Brigade puts on its game face for this engagement at the Blind Tiger. They play epic technical rock as a soundtrack to video games. They’re joined by Bronzed Chorus, the transcendental math-rock duo comprised of Hunter Allen on drums and Adam Joyce on guitar (little known fact: Rhiannon Giddens is his cousin). Also, Double Ferrari from Athens, Ga. Show starts at 9 p.m.
