Ark: Paul Thorn

Dark, bluesy, sharp-witted, pungently idiomatic original songs and covers by veteran Mississippi singer-songwriter Thorn, a former professional boxer who is the son of a tent revival minister. He's something of a more lowdown, blues- and soul-shaped Lyle Lovett, and Allmusic writer Thom Jurek calls Thorn a "soul singer who can slip down into the murk and mess of human emotions with style and aplomb." He has a brand-new CD, Never Too Late to Call. $30. [venue info]

Bel-Mark Lanes: II-V-I Orchestra

Veteran local big band, led by saxophonist David Swain, that plays late 1930s swing and 1940s R&B. [venue info]

Blind Pig: Canceled: "Grand Re-opening Extravaganza."

Aug. 27-29. Headliner is Stormy Chromer, a popular local progressive jam-rock quartet. The lineup of local openers includes the jazz-inflected progressive funk-rock quartet Chirp, the rock, blues, and funk quintet Act Casual, the versatile local horn-fired funk sextet Sabbatical Bob, the rock 'n' roll quartet ZZvava, the psych-rock garage band Warlock's Grave, the self-styled "soulful music collective VioletSol, hip-hop MCs Tru Klassick and MC Kadence, the post-hip-hop synth-pop dance music Beanstalk, and the electronic downtempo dance musician Scüter. $15 (3-day pass, $35).
