Each show is a unique, unpredictable event where the musicians come out with vodka bottles in hand and ready to rock like uncaged animals. The audience is invited to lose their ever-lovin’ minds along with the band whose musical talent is certainly apparent, but comes a distant second to the depravity they let loose on stage.

The Daniel Bennett Group
A CD release party for this critically-acclaimed New York saxophonist and his band, debuting their newest album, Clockhead Goes to Camp. Insite Magazine calls Bennett’s music, “refreshingly capricious and trippy.” The Village Voice raves, “saxophonist Daniel Bennett makes hay with an airy approach that’s buoyant enough to conjure notions of East African guitar riffs and Steve Reich’s pastoral repetition.” The Boston Herald describes Bennett’s music as “exploratory folk-jazz hybrid.” Huntington Public Library, 338 Main St., Huntington. thehuntingtonlibrary.org Free. 7:30 p.m. Nov. 14.

Born in Lettsworth, Louisianna, he moved north in 1957, going up the Mississippi River, carrying the music of the delta in his DNA. When he hit the clubs of the Windy City, aided by the likes of Junior Wells, he literally made “Something From Nothing,” the title of another great song he wrote.

The Hold Steady
A decade ago this great band from Brooklyn took shape when Craig Finn, Tad Kubler, Galen Polivka, Bobby Drake and Steve Selvidge forged their singular punked-up sound and took it to a higher level. Now they’re on tour with Teeth Dreams, their latest album, which took two years to record as they oscillated between studios in Brooklyn and Franklin, Tenn. Their debut record, Almost Killed Me, came out in 2004, showcasing their alternative rock and indie influences and their unique story-telling that addresses topics like drug addiction, religion and redemption. Now their dreams have grown so big you can sink your teeth into it—if it doesn’t bite you first. This is an exclusive performance by The Hold Steady, free to an intimate audience of Pandora listeners who RSVP online. Attendees will be treated to limited-edition event swag, an open bar for the first two hours of the evening and the chance to check out the all-new Chrysler 200.
