Thursday has been the new Friday for years, and that’s never more apparent than when midweek hits and you realize everything you want to see/hear/do happens before the weekend starts.
Tonight, one of the best jazz organ trios alive is performing at South on Main as a guest of the Oxford American magazine, and The Yarn storytelling project is partnering with Our House to bring real stories from folks who have benefited from the services Our House provides.
If you’re into Jimmy Smith or Booker T. & The M.G.’s, check out super-smooth combo Peter Bernstein, Larry Goldings (who, perhaps, you heard with James Taylor at Verizon Arena a few weeks ago) and Bill Stewart at South on Main tonight. Here’s a taste of their concert from Live at the Village Vanguard in 2013.
A little further downtown on Main St. at Cranford Co. (512 Main St.), The Yarn is bringing true stories from Our House, an organization that provides resources to homeless and near-homeless families so they can, in the organization’s words, “succeed in the workforce, in school, and in life through hard work, wise decision-making, and active participation in the community.” Get tickets here.
