MUSIC: Mike Baggetta with Mike Watt & Stephen Hodges @ the Iron Horse Music Hall, Northampton. A truly one-of-a-kind trio led by guitarist Mike Baggetta, featuring punk legend bassist Mike Watt (Minutemen, Iggy Pop and the Stooges, J Mascis) and drummer Stephen Hodges (Tom Waits, Mavis Staples, David Lynch). The music they play is utterly unclassifiable. Referencing it as post-genre-improv-jazz-rock may come close, but still doesn’t even begin to touch on the wild electric textures Baggetta’s guitar alone brings to the table. 7pm. $18.
MUSIC: TobyMac @ the Times Union Center, Albany. TobyMac’s popular “Hits Deep Tour” rolls into town with Jeremy Camp, Jordan Feliz, Ryan Stevenson, We Are Messengers and Aaron Cole. The seven-time Grammy winner’s headlining jaunt is a partnership with K-LOVE, Air1, Awakening Events and Food for the Hungry. 7pm. $22, $32.75, $42.75, $73.75 & $93.75.
THEATER: The Gun Show @ UAlbany Performing Arts Center, Albany. Award-winning playwright E.M. Lewis tells the story of America’s relationship with guns through the prism of her own personal experiences. Leaning neither right nor left, the play jumps into the middle of the gun control debate and asks “Can we have a conversation about this?” 7:30pm. $20; students $15.
TALK: Sarah Kessler @ the Tech Valley Center of Gravity, Troy. The author of “Gigged: The End of the Job and the Future of Work,” a groundbreaking analysis of the new American freelance economy, will join the NYS Writers Institute for a talk and presentation, 7:30pm. FREE.
