Jan. 10-11: Ben Allison
After releasing his 11th studio album, The Stars Look Very Different Today, back in December, the genre-bending jazz bassist and composer Ben Allison will be performing tonight with his band at The Mansion at Strathmore at 7:30. If you want to see the process behind the music, you can attend a free master class with Allison and his band tomorrow at 4 p.m. Just be sure to snag a ticket first.

Jan. 12: reWORKS Festival
This Sunday you can check out the reWORKS Festival at Blind Dog Café in Northwest. A production of the local theater company Blind Pug Arts Collective, the festival will include three staged readings of new shows by local playwrights. But while the one-act plays are new, the subjects might be familiar. The theme of the festival is “adaptations.” You’ll see a re-imagining of Beauty and the Beast in which social stigma is the curse at hand, a show inspired by a comic book, and finally, a dark tale about the 1916 Jersey Shore shark attacks.

Music: “The Ballad of Joe Buck” by Ben Allison
