Brubeck Brothers Quartet
We’ll open with a GoLocal Ticket Discount Alert –Save 40% with the code “GoLocal40” at tonight’s Brubeck Brothers Quartet concert at the Park Theatre. To get the discount, you must call the box office (401-467-7275) or pick up your tickets directly at the Theatre. The band celebrates the legacy of their late father with “A Tribute to Dave Brubeck,” starting at 8PM. It’s all part of a great line up of Jazz this month at the Park Theatre.
Coheed and Cambria
Also tonight, Lupo’s has rockers Coheed and Cambria, the first show of a busy stretch at the club. With the Cold War Kids on Monday and Fitz and the Tantrums on Tuesday, it’s a busy week at the esteemed venue. Balance and Composure and I the Mighty open the festivities tonight at 8PM. It’s an All Ages show – tickets are $30. Be sure to catch at least one Lupo’s show this week!
For our “Coffeehouse Show of the Week,” we head up to Franklin, MA tomorrow night, where the Circle of Friends Coffeehouse has Red Molly. The band blends county, folk and bluegrass, with a result that sounds darker than the Dixie Chicks, but lighter than Gillian Welch. On their recent album, “Light in the Sky,” they re-arrange songs from Robert Johnson and Peggy Lee (Fever), along with some great originals. The Circle of Friends meets at the First Universalist Society Meetinghouse, 262 Chestnut St, Franklin, MA. Layah Jane opens the show at 8PM. Tickets are $25.
Music of Elvis Costello
There’s a special show at the Narrows Center tomorrow night to celebrate the music of Elvis Costello. The show features a number of local acts playing Costello favorites. The music starts at 5PM with artists including Mark Cutler, Jenny Dee and Bob Kendall. If you’re expecting an appearance from the man himself … unlikely, but not impossible. He’s playing Neil Young’s Bridge School Benefit next weekend, so he may just need a tune up gig. “I Want You” to go to this show - so stop “Watching the Detectives” and get yourself down to the Narrows Center! Tickets are only $15 and the music starts at 5PM.
The English Beat
Another UK band, The English Beat rode the Post-Punk Ska wave into the 1980’s. They were a top selling band with major hits including “Save it for Later,” “Mirror in the Bathroom” and their cover of “Tears of a Clown.” Next Thursday October 24, they are in West Warwick at Manchester 65 for what we expect to be a great show. The Copasetics and Brunt of It open the All Ages show at 7:00. Tickets are $20.
