Ezra Furman & the Visions with Teddy Lamson
Tue. March 13 | Chicago troubadour Ezra Furman sells his latest drama, last year's transfixing Transangelic Exodus (Bella Union), like his life depends on it: a queer-love-story/Clyde and Clyde on-the-lam border break voiced with frayed-larynx dedication by a fatally protective protagonist. Teddy Lamson opens at 9 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.

Bela Fleck and Pines of Rome
Thu.-Sat. March 15-17 | New York-born banjo virtuoso Bela Fleck has set the standard for the instrument in his mastery of folk and bluegrass music. He premieres his Banjo Concerto with the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, which commissioned it. The program also includes Ottorino Respighi's Pines of Rome. At 7:30 p.m. Thursday and Saturday at Orpheum Theater and Friday at First Baptist Church in Covington.


Cowboys in the Campfire
Fri. March 16 | No matter your musical happy place, chances are Tommy Stinson is in there somewhere: The multi-fluent guitarist has his fingerprints on four decades as a member and/or sparring partner of The Replacements, Guns N' Roses, Soul Asylum, Old 97's and Bash & Pop. Cowboys in the Campfire pits his wits against Chip Roberts in an acoustic poison pick-off. At 10 p.m. at Siberia Lounge.

The Body and Thou
Sat. March 17 | With their previous collaborations, Louisiana's Thou and Rhode Island's The Body have opened portals to the netherworld with their singularly visceral darkness. Performing as one band, area parishioners are on high alert. New Orleans doom bands Mars and Space Cadaver join an apocalyptic lineup with Vile Creature and Aseethe at 8 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.

Snail Mail
Sat. March 17 | Songwriter Lindsey Jordan, who is now 18, had to get a permission slip to take her band on tour before she finished high school. But her age is the second most remarkable thing about her Snail Mail, tugging at itchy-sweater growing pains with hot knife lyricism and Flying Nun Records-inspired guitar-pop — showcased on 2016 EP Habit and a forthcoming full-length on Matador Records. Shame and Bat Fangs open at 8 p.m. at Hi-Ho Lounge.
