Looking for something to do during the next week? There are tons of shows to choose from, but here are our picks.
Soul and jazz musician Roy Ayers is taking a turn into Blues Alley for a weekend of shows. The vibraphonist – and all this time I thought it was a xylophone – has produced his share of fan favorites, including classics “Everybody Loves The Sunshine,” “Africa – Centre Of The World,” with Fela Kuti and “Running Away.” Ayers performs at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. each night. Tickets are $35. Saturday show already sold out. Blues Alley is offering a half-off discount for tickets purchased online for the 10 p.m. Sunday show.
Bohemian Caverns marks the birthday of late jazz saxophonist John Coltrane with an evening featuring a musical duet between trumpeter and sax player Joe McPhee and double bass player Dominic Duval. Show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10.
R&B singer Miguel makes his way to The Howard Theatre this week as a part of his Kaliedoscope Dream Tour. The artist will be promoting his new album, Kaliedoscope Dream, but there’s no doubt he’ll perform some of the hits from his debut album – “All I Want Is You,” “Quickie” and “Sure Thing.” Kaliedoscope Dream, which drops Oct. 2, features “Adorn.” You can just hear him singing “Let my love adorn you” in your ear now. … OK, maybe not everyone can. Show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25 and $30 the day of the show. Doors open at 6 p.m.
