Benefit for Johnny Vidacovich 

Considering his constant presence on the gig scene, it was bound to happen. The stellar jazz and funk drummer Johnny Vidacovich (pictured), the Energizer Bunny of the beat, is in danger of winding down. Vidacovich, whose house is in need of multiple repairs, also needs to rest his drumming hands to alleviate the onset of arthritis in his right thumb. To keep him from compounding the problem by gigging till he drops to cover bills, some of his friends in the music scene have rallied to give him a break from the drum stool, at least for the night. The benefit's roster includes Galactic, Papa Grows Funk, the Midnight Disturbers and Garage-A-Trois featuring Robert Walter, Mark Mullins, Anders Osborne and Renard Poche. Tickets $20 " Alison Fensterstock

9 p.m. Wed., Jan. 16

Tipitina's, 501 Napoleon Ave., 895-TIPS; www.tipitinas.com
