MUSIC: Punch Brothers @ MASS MoCA’s Hunter Center, North Adams. With their Grammy Award-winning 2018 album All Ashore, mandolin master Chris Thile and the band have firmly re-established themselves as the world’s most exciting progressive bluegrass band. With Gabriel Kahane. 8pm. $49.

THEATER: Bindlestiff Family Cirkus @ Club Helsinki, Hudson.

DANCE: Parsons Dance @ PS21, Chatham. Find out what happens when machines and humans come together in a spectacular new performance medium where flying drones interact with dancers live on stage. 3pm. $15; students $5.
