Bright Light Bright Light + Bridget Barkan

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

Elton John collaborator Bright Light Bright Light (a.k.a. Welsh singer-songwriter Rod Thomas) is poised for big things, thanks to his dramatic Robyn-esque blend of dance beats and melancholy melodies—and he seems to be attracting a similar (gay) following. He regales a rapt audience with selections from his new LP, Life Is Easy.

Back to the Eighties Show with Jessie's Girl

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

Leg warmers live on with Reagan-era fixated combo Jessie’s Girl playing vintage hits like “We Built This City” and “Don’t Stop Believin’,” bookended by period-apropos DJ sets. Kelly Ripa apparently endorses this party—and since she’s a graduate of the seminal ’80s teen dance show Dance Party USA, it’s safe to consider her something of an expert.

Taka Kigawa

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

Most pianists would be quite content to pull off playing Pierre Boulez's supremely challenging Second Piano Sonata during a set—but not Taka Kigawa. No, this tireless, excellent recitalist is presenting the entire, beautifully clangorous Boulez solo piano catalog. Yes, that includes both the recent Une page d’éphéméride and a rarely heard early fragment of the ever-unfinished Third Sonata ("Sigle"). Be impressed.

Tom Harrell: Colors of a Dream

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

Everybody knows that Tom Harrell is one of the greatest jazz trumpeters alive, but it's a mistake to overlook his prowess as a composer and arranger. You'll hear ample proof this week as he showcases intricate, airy sextet works, as heard on last year's Colors of a Dream, featuring Esperanza Spalding on bass and vocals.
