Tonight the suggested event is a concert happening at The Crocodile. The stand out phrase from the review, for me, was “thick, hairy guitar riffs.” Hairy?! Yjikes!

And so much more recommended music tonight. Neo-soul at Jazz Alley, ambient at Cairo, metal at El Corazón, and Los Lobos set up camp at The Triple Door, where they'll be all weekend. Music really is something, isn’t it? So many different kinds of musics. Wow.

(Musical recommendations for this weekend include: Saturday's suggested baroque violinist, Rachel Barton Pine, at Town Hall, avant-punk band Partman Parthorse on Saturday at Highline and an MLK Unity Party DJ Night with Riz Rollins on Sunday)
