Beirut at Terminal 5
Zach Condon has built a cottage industry out of turning Gypsy carpetbaggery into catchy gold, and with his recent album Rip Tide, he's done it again. Tonight Condon and his band, pictured, settle in for a two-night local stand. Read our preview here.
Gary Burton New Quartet at Blue Note
Vibraphonist extraordinaire Gary Bruton has an nose for guitar talent. Expect Julian Lage, his latest find, to shine tonight as he plucks his way through the leader's fleet, sparkling originals.
Olivia Tremor Control + The Music Tapes at Le Poisson Rouge
The other recently revived Elephant 6 act struts its indie-rock stuff. The Music Tapes feature a member of Neutral Milk Hotel, but it might to be too much to hope for a surprise Jeff Mangum appearance.
Moufy at Gramercy Theatre
A buzzed-about Boston rapper with a laid-back flow, a fine line in samples and a pretty awesome moniker hits Gramercy.
